Medal summary[edit]

The events are labelled as 3 metre springboard and 10 metre platform by the International Olympic Committee,[1] and appeared on the 1932 Official Report as springboard diving and high diving, respectively.[2] The platform events included dives from both 10 metre and 5 metre platforms, but, from now on, the springboard events were reduced to dives from the 3 metre board.[3]
