The Synchronised 10m Platform is run as a straight final, with eight teams competing. The men’s event consists of six rounds of dives.
A random draw is made in advance to decide the order in which teams dive. A panel of 11 judges assesses each dive, giving a score out of 10. At the end of the competition the team with the highest total score takes the gold medal.
