It is said that the sport originated with Hawaiian kings jumping off of cliffs in order to display their courage to their warriors. It was introduced as an official competition discipline at the 2013 World Championships. Women jump from a 20-metre-high platform and men from a 27-metre-high platform. It takes only three seconds before landing. Blink and you'll miss the action.
