Definition: A rating for all dives performed in competition ranging from 1.2 to 4.1. The degree of difficulty (D.D.) is used to calculate the final score of a dive. The D.D. - as it is familiarly known, is multiplied by the sum of the judges' scores, or awards, for each dive. This score, or award, is then added together with the scores for other dives performed in a competition, for the total score for the contest.
Also Known As: DD, dd, d.d., D.D.
