In 1912, a platform diving event for men was introduced called "plain high diving". In this event, no acrobatic moves were allowed, only a simple straight dive off the platform.
This event was included in the Olympic program until 1928, where it was merged with "fancy high diving" into one competition called 'highboard diving'.
