At the 1932 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, four diving events were organized, two for men, and two for women. The competitions were held from Monday, 8 August 1932 to Saturday, 13 August 1932.[1]

Medal summary

The events are labelled as 3 metre springboard and 10 metre platform by the International Olympic Committee,[2] and appeared on the 1932 Official Report as springboard diving and high diving, respectively.[3] The platform events included dives from both 10 metre and 5 metre platforms, but, from now on, the springboard events were reduced to dives from the 3 metre board.[4]
