Diving is an aquatic sport, where competitors jump from a diving board high above a deep pool and perform acrobatics before entering the water.

It's been around since late 19th century and made its debut in the Olympic Games in 1904.

At first people just dived into the water, but later acrobatics or fancy dives, were introduced.
