The plunge for distance was an underwater diving event held as part of the diving at the 1904 Summer Olympics programme. The competition was held on Monday, September 5, 1904. It was the first time diving events were held at the Olympics. Five divers, all from the United States, competed. Plunge for distance did not appear in any subsequent Olympic Games.
Plunge for distance was a diving long jump. Competitors dove into the pool from a standing position and their attained distance was measured after either 60 seconds passed or their head broke the surface, whichever came first. Divers could not propel themselves through the water after the initial dive as they were required to remain motionless.
