The men's 10 metre platform was one of five diving events on the diving at the 1920 Summer Olympics programme. The competition was held on Sunday, August 28, 1920 (first round) and on Monday, August 29, 1920 (final).

Sources vary on whether Adolfo Wellisch competed, and thus whether 14 or 15 divers from 6 or 7 nations competed. The official report does not list him, but both de Wael and sports-reference[1] include him, with the latter even giving a score.
