Twists and turns, poise and precision, speed and somersaults – welcome to Diving.

Seven judges give each diver a score out of 10, with each diver performing multiple dives. 

The top two scores and the bottom two scores are discarded. The remaining three are added together and multiplied by the dive’s degree of difficulty, with the highest score at the end winning gold.

The Diving schedule at the 2022 Birmingham Commonwealth Games was:


  • 1m springboard, men’s, and women’s events
  • 3m springboard, men’s, and women’s events
  • 10m platform, men’s, and women’s events


  • 3m springboard, men’s, women’s, and mixed team events
  • 10m platform, men’s, women’s, and mixed team events

Diving has been at every Commonwealth Games since the inaugural event in Hamilton, Canada, in 1930. Synchronised diving made its debut at the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games.

There will be 36 diving medals, including 12 gold medals, up for grabs at Victoria 2026. 

More information on Diving and the venue will be available soon.
