About diving in brief

Diving is a recreational and pleasurable activity of falling into a water region from rocks, bridges and cliffs. Eventually it is recognized as the international sport and also at the Olympics in which the diver has to fall from a platform or spring board with different level of altitudes. Typically in Olympics, the depth of the pool is 5m for 10m platform or 3m spring board.

How to perform Professional Diving?

A set of instructions must be followed to perform the right diving:

  • Take 3 to 4 steps and slightly jump off in the air to land on the platform end with the arms straight over the head followed by doing the slight jumping from the platform end.
  • Raise the hips above the shoulder level instantly after jumping.
  • Reach the hands towards the legs such that the body should pose like inverted V shape.
  • Finally, straighten the body to accomplish the dive.


The sport was slowly derived from the gymnastics during the early 18th and 19th centuries in Sweden and German countries. Later the Swedish divers demonstrated the activity to draw the attention of huge popularity and led to the formation of the first amateur diving association in the early 20th century. Eventually, the sport was incorporated at the 1904 Olympic games.
