The platform diving was a diving event held as part of the diving at the 1904 Summer Olympics programme. It was the first time diving events were held at the Olympics. The competition was held on Wednesday, September 7, 1904.

Five divers from two nations competed.

Braunschweiger refused to dive-off for the bronze medal so it was originally only given to Kehoe. Nevertheless the IOC medal database nowadays also lists Braunschweiger as bronze medal winner.
