On July 28, 2021, the Tokyo Aquatics Centre hosted the men’s Synchronized 3m Springboard diving events at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. That makes its sixth Olympic Games appearance since the year 2000’s Summer Games.

Each team competed against the other over the course of a single round, which included six dives. Divers from various teams performed each dive (forward, back, reverse, inward, and twisting).

Both of the beginner dives were assigned the same difficulty rating of 2.0. Somersaults, location, twists, approach, and entry were used to determine the difficulty levels of the last four dives.

Dive difficulty was not capped, and even the most difficult dives (a reverse 4.5 somersault in the pike position and a back 4.5 somersault in the pike position) were allowed to be attempted.

Eleven judges tallied the scores, five for judging the synchronisation and three for judging the divers’ individual execution. Each judge scored each dive from 0 to 10, in increments of 0.5.

The highest and lowest synchronisation and execution marks for each diver were disregarded. Dive scores were calculated by adding the last five scores, multiplying the result by 35, and then multiplying that result by the difficulty rating.

The overall score was calculated by adding the points from each of the six dives.

Wang Zongyuan and Xie Siyi won the men’s 3 metre synchronised springboard to give China its third diving gold medal of the Tokyo Olympics. They had previously lost the crown to Great Britain in Rio.

In the final dive of the competition, Germany pushed Mexico out of the medals and took bronze for themselves.

Chinese team members Wang Han and Shi Tingmao scored 326.40 points to win the women’s Synchronized 3m Springboard event. It’s an event they’ve dominated at the Olympics, winning the last four gold medals.
