Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2015 – Action Clip – Azores, Portugal



PURE CLIFF DIVING SEES NEW FACES ON THE PODIUM
With three new podium finishers the 2015 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series enters a decisive phase
Mexico’s Jonathan Paredes and Andy Jones, from the United States, cause a stir in the World Series as they dive into the top-three in the season’s purest stop on a volcanic islet in the Azores archipelago, behind the ever-dominant Gary Hunt, from England. In what was the year’s closest result from almost three times the Olympic height, the athletes returned to the sport’s roots and leapt directly off the cliff to hit the water three seconds later with their bare feet at speeds of 85kph. On July 18, a passionate Portuguese crowd witnessed a wildcard winner in the second of three Women’s World Series competitions of 2015, as American Cesilie Carlton finished just ahead of Mexico’s Adriana Jimenez and the USA’s Ginger Huber.

Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2015 – Action Clip – Cartagena, Colombia



It was a season-start in style for four-time World Series champion Gary Hunt, who dominated the first competition of the 2015 season in Colombia’s Cartagena, making it his 20th victory in seven years of the World Series. The Brit’s haul of 526.20 points is his second-highest score to date, and just 0.20 points short of his personal best. 30,000 vocal spectators cheered their local hero Orlando Duque (477.60pts) to a podium finish from the 27m-platform on the Centro de Convenciones and secured the Colombian the best start to a season for three years. Secondplaced David Colturi, from the USA, gave another very strong performance plunging into the year with a new personal best (493.80pts).
