reverse dive with a twist
Dive started in reverse position; the athlete then executes a body spin and enters the water head first.
forward somersault with a twist
Dive started with a run-up walk in the forward position; the diver then executes a forward body spin and enters the water feet first.
Part of the dive between the start and the entry; whatever the type of dive chosen, the diver must demonstrate suppleness, elegance and fluidity.
height of the dive
Elevation attained during takeoff; it must be sufficient enough for the diver to complete the series of planned movements.
Final part of the dive, the moment when the diver enters the water.
