Date12 – 15 July 1912
LocationSimstadion, Djurgårdsbrunnsviken, Stockholm
Participants23 from 7 countries
FormatPlatform at heights of 5 and 10 metres.

In this event, the divers executed one plain running dive and one backwards somersault dive from 5 metres, one plain running dive and one plain standing dive from 10 metres, and three optional dives from 10 metres. The optional dives were to be selected from a table 13 allowable dives. Erik Adlerz had already won the plain high diving competition. Adlerz was leading on all judges totals going into his last dive, a flying somersault, but failed badly on it, and was then ranked second by two of the judges, trailing Albert Zürner. However, he was ranked first by three judges, and his total ordinal score of seven enabled him to win the championship.
