The men's 3 metre springboard, also reported as springboard diving, was one of four diving events on the Diving at the 1988 Summer Olympics programme. Memorably, defending champion Greg Louganis managed to complete the preliminary qualifying after hitting his head on the springboard while performing a reverse 2½ pike in the third round and suffering a concussion, and continued to the finals to win the gold medal.[1]

A historic score was also established by Hong Kong athlete Kin Chung Wong, who jumped right after Louganis' injury and was so unnerved by the event that he did a wrong dive that earned him the first zero score ever in the Olympics.[citation needed]

The competition was split into two phases:

  1. Preliminary round (19 September)
    Divers performed eleven dives. The twelve divers with the highest scores advanced to the final.
  2. Final (20 September)
    Divers performed another set of eleven dives and the score here obtained determined the final ranking.
