The competition was split into two phases:

  1. Preliminary round (27 August)
    Divers performed seven dives. The twelve divers with the highest scores advanced to the final.
  2. Final (28 August)
    Divers performed three voluntary dives without limit of degrees of difficulty. The final ranking was determined by the combined score with the preliminary round.
