It all started in Great Britain
Diving as a sport was born in the United Kingdom in the 19th century or, more precisely, in 1880, as it was only then that the first competitions began to be held. They also became very popular in Germany at the same time, and it was there that the first national championship in water jumping was held in 1886. In 1904, in St. Louis, this discipline was included in the Olympic program for the first time, and 20 years later the first Olympic competition was held in Paris. Since 1924, in the Games both men and women have competed in jumping from a 10-meter tower and a 3-meter trampoline. In 2000, synchronized jumping competitions were also held in Sydney for the first time ever. Since 1899 the European championships have been held in this competition, and since 1973 the world championships have been held.
The discipline is supervised by the International Diving Committee (IDC) of the International Swimming Federation (FINA), and in Poland by the Diving Commission of the Polish Swimming Federation.
