Redbull – Cliff Diving World Series In Corsica 2012 Event

Why is 27 meters (and not 25 or 29) the standard height? What is the scuba divers’ job? Why does it only take 5 meters of water depth? What make the athletes dive from almost three times the Olympic height — the thrill and the challenge of this spectacular sport? And is it possible to dive head first from this height? For your reference: the height is comparable to an eight-storey building, the divers fall free for three seconds before they hit the water at 85 km/h.
