Olympic Diving

Diving has been an Olympic discipline since the 1904 Games in St Louis and Great Britain have won a total of seven medals across the Olympic history including most recently bronze for Tom Daley in 2012 and silver for Leon Taylor and Peter Waterfield in 2004. 

  • Great Britain made its Olympic diving debut in 1908. 
  • Women's diving was added to the Olympic Games in 1912.
  • Originally, there was only a platform diving event and a plunge for distance event incorporated into diving at the Olympic Games. A men's springboard diving event replaced the plunge for distance event in 1908 and a synchronised diving variant for both the springboard and platform events was added in 2000.
  • In the history of the Olympic Games, Great Britain have won two silver medals and five bronze medals. Peter Waterfield and Leon Taylor picked up GB's last silver medal in the Synchronised 10m platform event in Athens. GB's last bronze medal was won by Tom Daley in the 10m Platform event at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
