Diving as a competitive sport where the goal is more effective jumpers, acrobatic gymnastics with presentation elements during a jump, jump into water from high places. Swimming as an Olympic sport, although the standard is often performed as a recreational and entertainment on natural or artificial beaches.
Diving requires a very high concentration, also requires a very large physical condition. Here you can see what they look like people’s faces when they jump into the water, a few selected funniest moments from jumping into the water.
The two main events jumps into the water: jumping from springboard and jumping from the tower. Jumping from springboard performed with elastic reflections at the board provides an additional incentive jumper resulting in a higher and more energetic jump. Diving is performed from a height of 1 to 3 meters above the water surface. The tower is solid, usually concrete or wooden take-off, at a height of 5 to 10 meters above the water surface. Standard competing disciplines are:
board 1 m
board 3 m
10 m tower
The competition is conducted in male and female. At the Olympic Games in Sydney in 2000 introduced the discipline of synchronized jumps, where two contestants from the same team simultaneously performed an identical jump, and the weight of elements other than the quality of performance and evaluated both jump.
