Held at the Tokyo Aquatics Centre, the preliminary was won by China’s Yang Jian, who scored a total of 546.90.

Chan, who is the last Team Singapore athlete to compete at the Tokyo Olympics, began the preliminary round with a score of 51, and followed it up with a score of 54.4 for his second dive.
