Summary

For the first time this event was contested fully from a 10-metre platform, with four compulsory dives in a single final round. Dorothy Poynton-Hill repeated her gold medal performance from Los Angeles. She also won a 1928 springboard silver and added a bronze medal on springboard in Berlin, finishing her Olympic career with four diving medals. The silver medal in this event went to Velma Dunn in her only Olympic appearance. Likewise, German bronze medalist Käthe Köhler was competing in her only Olympic event. The event was very close with only ½-point separating the three medalists.
