Mixed Team Event
The mixed team event will be held for the fourth time at the world aquatics championships.
The previous nine medals in this event have been won by seven different countries. Only China (G1-S0-B1) and the United States (G0-S0-B2) claimed multiple medals in the team event.
At the 2019 FINA World Championships in Gwangju, China's Lin Shan/Yang Jian won the gold medal in this event, ahead of Russia's Sergey Nazin/Yulia Timoshinina and USA's Andrew Capobianco/Katrina Young. China became the first country to win all diving events contested at the world aquatics championships.
Matthieu Rosset (FRA) and Laura Marino (FRA) won the mixed team event at the 2017 FINA World Championships in Budapest, picking up France's first-ever diving medal at the world aquatics championships. Mexico took silver through Viviana del Ángel/Rommel Pacheco, while USA's David Dinsmore/Krysta Palmer picked up bronze.
Tom Daley (GBR) and Rebecca Gallantree (GBR) won the 2015 world title in this event in Kazan. Gallantree became the first female diver representing Great Britain to win a medal at the world aquatics championships. Ukraine's Oleksandr Gorshkovozov/Yulia Prokopchuk took silver and China's Chen Ruolin/Xie Siyi the bronze medal.
Australia and Canada could join China and Great Britain as the only countries to have finished on the podium of all three mixed events held at the world aquatics championships.
Women's 1m Springboard
Chen Yiwen (CHN)
Chen Yiwen won the women's 1m springboard at the 2019 FINA World Championships. It marked a record-extending sixth world title for China in this event.
Chen can become the first woman to win this event at back-to-back world aquatics championships.
Three women have won multiple gold medals in the women's 1m springboard: Irina Lashko (RUS/AUS, 1998 and 2003), Blythe Hartley (CAN, 2001 and 2005) and He Zi (CHN, 2007 and 2013).
Chinese athletes claimed a record 17 medals in this event at the world aquatics championships (next 5 by Russia and Canada).
China won at least one medal in this event in 11 of the 13 times it was contested, with the exception of 2003 and 2017.
Sarah Bacon (USA) picked up silver in this event at the world aquatics championships in 2019. It marked USA's second medal in the women's 1m springboard, after silver by Wendy Lucero in 1991.
Bacon can become the second athlete to win the women's 1m springboard world title after finishing second in the previous edition, after Tania Cagnotto (ITA) in 2015.
Kim Suji (KOR) became the first diver representing Republic of Korea to claim a world championships medal when she took bronze in this event in 2019.
Esther Qin (AUS) and Georgie Sheehan (AUS) could claim Australia's third medal in this event at the world aquatics championships, after gold by Irina Lashko in 2003 and gold by Maddison Keeney in 2017.
Elena Bertocchi (ITA), reigning European champion in the women's 1m springboard, took bronze in this event at the 2017 FINA World Championships in Budapest.
Bertocchi's compatriot Tania Cagnotto won the 2015 world title in this event as the reigning European champion.
Italian athletes only won as many diving medals in the women's 3m springboard (4, all bronze) as in the women's 1m springboard (4, G1-S1-B2) at the world aquatics championships.
Mixed 3m Springboard Synchro
The mixed 3m springboard synchro event will be held for the fourth time at the world aquatics championships.
Canada is the only country to have claimed a medal in this event in each of the first three editions, all won by Jennifer Abel and François Imbeau-Dulac: silver in 2015 and 2019, and bronze in 2017.
Australia's Matthew Carter/Maddison Keeney won this event at the 2019 FINA World Championships in Gwangju. It marked Australia's fourth world title in diving. Keeney became the first Australian diver to win multiple world titles.
China had won the first two editions of this event at the world aquatics championships: Wang Han/Yang Hao in 2015 and Wang Han/Li Zheng in 2017.
The mixed 3m springboard synchro event was the only diving event at the 2019 FINA World Championships in which China did not win a medal. Yang Hao/Chang Yani withdrew from the event as Yang wanted to focus on the men's 10m platform final later that day.
Italy picked up bronze in this event in 2015 through Tania Cagnotto/Maicol Verzotto. For Cagnotto, it marked the 10th medal at the world aquatics championships. She became the fourth diver, and the first non-Chinese diver, to reach 10+ diving medals. Canada's Jennifer Abel became the fifth diver, and second non-Chinese diver, to achieve that feat when she won silver in this event in 2019.
Tom Daley (GBR) and Grace Reid (GBR) claimed silver in this event at 2017 Budapest. Daley became the first diver representing Great Britain to complete the medal set of gold-silver-bronze at the world aquatics championships.
In 2019, Germany's Lou Massenberg/Tina Punzel placed third in this event at the world aquatics championships. At the age of 18 years, Massenberg became the youngest German male diver to claim a world championships medal.
