Competition formatEdit

The competition will be held in a single round, consisting of each pair performing six dives. The dives must be from 5 different groups (forward, back, reverse, inward, twisting, and armstand). The first two dives are given a fixed degree of difficulty of 2.0, regardless of the dive performed. The other four dives are assigned a degree of difficulty based on somersaults, position, twists, approach, and entry. There is no limit to the degree of difficulty of dives; the most difficult dives calculated in the FINA rulebook (reverse 4 ​12 somersault in pike position and armstand reverse 4 somersault in pike position) are 4.8, but competitors could attempt more difficult dives. Scoring is done by a panel of eleven judges, with five judges evaluating synchronization and three judges evaluating execution of each individual diver. For each dive, each judge gives a score between 0 and 10 with 0.5 point increments. The top and bottom synchronization scores and the top and bottom execution scores for each diver are discarded. The remaining five scores are summed, multiplied by ​35, and multiplied by the degree of difficulty to give a dive score. The six dive scores are summed to give the score for the round.[2]
