Clearing the stage for gravity-defying feats

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 27 agosto 2010

Switzerland hosts fifth stop of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2010 Mounted on an iconic landmark, surrounded by mountains up to 1500m high and towering over Switzerland’s fourth largest lake – the stage was set for the world’s most accomplished high divers to take part in the first training session today in the picturesque village of Sisikon. After the closest competition to date in 2009, the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series will again visit William Tell’s place on Saturday, August 28. The pressure at the top has been cranked up after the last competition in Italy and, with an eye on the final, the second to last stop will bring the tension close to boiling point. Excitement is also tangible in the village of 370 residents as they eagerly awaits thousands of visitors who will watch the 12 athletes’ jaw-dropping diving action and splashless freshwater entries from their boats, inflatable air mattresses, from surfboards or from the shores.
For those who cannot make it to the place where the great Swiss folk hero William Tell allegedly escaped capture by leaping from a boat up to a cliff ledge, the penultimate stop in the 2010 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series will be screened as a live webcast on http://www.redbullcliffdiving.com beginning at 3.30pm.
