LocationPiscine des Tourelles, Saint-Mandé
Participants25 from 10 countries
Format5 and 10 metre platforms.

Australian Richmond Eve won this event in a seemingly close competition in the final round. But it was only close because of the actions of the fourth judge, who ranked Eve only equal seventh among the nine finalists. The other four judges ranked him no worse than second. This event was contested from 5- and 10-metre platforms, with four dives in each round, two compulsory and two optional. This was the last time a plain high diving event was contested at the Olympics.
