  • Steven LoBue (USA) is the third world champion in men's high diving after Orlando Luque (COL) in 2013 and Gary Hunt (GBR) in 2015.
     
  • LoBue hands United States its first medal in this event at the world championships.
     
"It's a surreal moment, when hundreds of hours of training come together and pays off, so honestly I couldn't been happier. Now I'm going to have a month rest with my wife and daughter. It's very good that we are like a big family and it makes you more relax and you can focus on the jump easier when friends are around you at the competitions. This event was amazing and it was a big breakthrouh because of the tank setup. In the beginning it was weird for the divers, but after the first training we realized how good is this pool idea."
 

 
  • Michal Navratil (CZE, silver) and Alessandro De Rose (ITA, bronze) also claimed the first podium spots for their country in this event at the world championships.
     
  • Navratil's silver medal is the first ever for Czech Republic (or Czechoslovakia) in any men's event in any sport at the FINA World Aquatics Championships.
     
  • The last czech woman to claim a medal at the FINA World Aquatics Championships was Ilona Hlavackova in the women's 50m backstroke in 2003 (silver).
     
"I don't even think now, I had bad luck in Kazan , one of my jump didn't work, but here all my jump was good
 and I'm very happy now for the 2nd place. To be part of this small group of the high divers it's very speciel and I'm lucky to be here. We help each other a lot. The city is amazing and I think we have a very unique view from the top of the tower, and we can see the castles and churches."
 

 
  • De Rose claimed Italy's 15th medal at the 2017 FINA World Aquatics Championships, a record number for the country at a single edition (14 in 2015).
     
  • Five of the nine world championships medals in men's high diving have now been won by divers older than 30 years (LoBue and Navratil are both 32).
     
"There is many things in my head right now. I didnt except this 3rd place , I just tried to do my best and it's worked. Everybody who's jumping from 27 meters knows the risk and the danger, so we always cheer and support each other. It was great how everything was made here and the organisation was amazing and the tower was very stabile."
