Diving was not included in the earliest list of sports confirmed for the 2015 Games, as the European swimming authorities at that stage were minded not to take part. However, following negotiations with the organising authorities, a compromise was reached whereby, in 2015, these events will be for junior divers only - in effect, athletes between the ages of 14 and 18.[2]

QualificationEdit

160 divers are expected to take part. National Olympic Committees will be restricted to one entry in each synchronised event, and two entries in each individual event. As host, Azerbaijan is entitled to a minimum one diver.

Following the European Junior Diving Championships in July 2014 (Bergamo, Italy), LEN will confirm the quotas per nation and based on an average ranking by NOC from the last three European Junior Diving Championships.[3]
