The competition was actually held from both 10 metre and 5 metre platforms. Divers performed four compulsory dives - standing inward plain dive, standing backward dive with twist, running forward somersault dive and running reverse somersault dive (5 metre platform) - and four dives of the competitor's choice for a total of eight dives. The competition was held on Saturday July 19, 1924 and Sunday July 20, 1924.
