Medal summary

The events are labelled as 3 metre springboard and 10 metre platform by the International Olympic Committee,[1] and appeared on the 1936 Official Report as springboard diving and high diving, respectively.[2] Following the reduction of the springboard events to the 3 metre height, in 1932, the platform events were also reduced to dives from the 10 metre platform, but only for men.[3] Meanwhile, women still dived from both 10 and 5 metre heights.[4]
