Each country can obtain a maximum of two tickets to the Paris Olympics in the men’s 10m platform.

China and Great Britain secured two spots for the Paris Olympics in this event at last year’s Fukuoka World Championships, so they cannot add an additional Olympic spot for this event.

In addition, Mexico and Canada, which secured one spot in the Fukuoka competition, produced two semifinalists in this competition.

Mexico and Canada can only add one ticket to the Olympics in this competition.

With Shin Jeong-hwi performing well at the Doha competition, Korean diving won all two spots available in the men’s 10m platform individual event.

In the preliminaries on this day, Chao Yuan (29, China) ranked first with 503.80 points.

At the Olympics, Cao Yuan won two gold medals in individual events in Rio de Janeiro (3m springboard) in 2016 and Tokyo (10m platform) in 2021, but at the World Championships, she won three gold medals only in synchro events in which two people run together.
