RIODiving was first introduced in the official programme of the Summer Olympic Games at the 1904 Games of St. Louis and has been an Olympic sport since.

At the 1908 Summer Olympics, men’s springboard diving was added to the programme replacing the plunge for distance, regarded as uninteresting.

By the time of the 1996 Summer Olympics, the diving events were exactly the same as in 1928. However, four years later in Sydney, the inclusion of a synchronized diving variant for the springboard and platform events elevated the list up to eight events.
