- Rhiannan Iffland (AUS) won the women's high diving event, becoming the first high diver from Australia to win a World Championships medal (male and female).
"It's been an amazing couple of days, getting up to that amazing platform, amazing facility that they put together for us. And to tell you the truth to standing up on that platform and seeing the view from up the top with the Parliament on the right and the city around definitely took the edge off the diving. So thanks for having us here and I really enjoyed the competition." - Iffland said at the press conference.
- Iffland (25) became the youngest world champion in this event, as well. Rachelle Simpson (USA) held the record as she was 27 years old when she won the world title in 2015.
She also spoke about their high diving community.
"We are a really close community and we are travelling together to all different locations almost six months of the year, so everybody is encouraging and if you need a shoulder to lean on or some advice or just a chat there is always somebody around. But otherwise it's a very dangerous sport and extreme so you don't ever want to see anybody do anything but well, so everybody is always encouraging you and it's an incredible feeling."
- Iffland's gold medal was the first gold medal for a diver not from the United States in this event. In 2013 Cesilie Carlton (USA) won this event and in 2015 it was Rachelle Simpson (USA).
- Adriana Jiménez (MEX) claimed the silver medal. She finished fourth in this event two years ago.
- Jimenez became the second Mexican medallist in high diving at the World Championships, after Jonathan Paredes (MEX) who has claimed a bronze and silver medal in the men's event.
"Well I'm cheering on all the girls here and we are a big family and we love each other, we want to take care of everybody and yes, thanks for having us here I'm so so happy and thanks to everybody who worked so hard for us. I always feared when I was a 10 meter diver, I always cried before the jumps so I quitted. But destiny and life put me again in this game and now it's double the height, but I learned to manage my mind and the fear and to respect heights." - added Jimenez.
- Yana Nestsiarava (BLR) took the bronze, the same medal she took in this event two years ago.
- Nestsiarava joined Cesilie Carlton (G1-S1) as the only multi-medallists in this event at the World Championships.
