Diving Qualification

Qualification Summary

Each National Olympic Committee can enter a maximum of 16 competitors (8 men and 8 women) with a maximum of two athletes per individual event and one team of two athletes per synchronized diving event. As hosts, Japan was given athlete quotas to compete in the four synchronized diving events. The remaining quotas will be decided at various events, specifically the 2019 World Aquatics Championships, continental qualifiers and the 2020 Diving World Cup. An athlete can only qualify one quota for their nation in a single event. For the continental qualifiers only the highest ranked athlete can qualify a quota. Should the maximum athlete quota of 136, 34 on each board and gender not be reached additional athletes can qualify through the 2020 Diving World Cup.
