Diving is the sport of jumping or falling into water from a platform or springboard, usually while performing acrobatics. Here you can see mixed gender participants of synchronized swimming performing a dive.
The raw score is multiplied by a degree of difficulty factor, derived from the number and combination of movements attempted. The diver with the highest total score after a sequence of dives is declared the winner.
The speed of rotation – and therefore the total amount of rotation – may be varied from moment to moment by changing the shape of the body, in accordance with the law of conservation of angular momentum.
Scoring the dive:
There are rules governing the scoring of a dive. Usually, a score considers three elements of the dive: the approach, the flight, and the entry.

Synchronized diving:
In these events, the diving would be judged both on the quality of execution and the synchronicity – in timing of take-off and entry, height and forward travel.

Dive positions:
These positions are referred to by the letters A, B, C and D respectively.
Competitive athletes are divided by gender, and often by age group.
