redbullredbull1The 2014 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series goes pure in Portugal on July 26 When the circular-shaped islet of Vila Franca do Campo on the Azorean island of São Miguel in the middle of the Atlantic hosts World Series competition, the sport of cliff diving returns to its roots – a high cliff, water and 14 of the world’s best athletes. It will be directly from an impressive monolith of volcanic stone and a cliff face on the outside crater wall of the islet that the divers will take off. Pure cliff diving in the required rounds, only for the more difficult optional dives will the athletes use the platform construction placed 28m above the ocean. Going into the second half of the season, the 2014 World Series returns to its pure and most fascinating natural element – a special thrill for this elite group of athletes – and the first training session at the “Princess Ring”, as the locals call the venue, was spiced up with challenging conditions in Europe’s weather lab. The two previous competitions on Portuguese soil have seen Artem Silchenko and Gary Hunt – both World Series champions – take victory. The Englishman is in perfect shape and leads the standings, while the Russian fights on despite a shoulder injury. Will the “Princess Ring” produce a new winner? The fifth stop of the season – and the third year in a row that the volcanic nature reserve has hosted cliff diving competition – starts Saturday, July 26, at 10am local time – it doesn’t get any purer than this! Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2014 It’s pure, it’s fast and it takes your breath away. Cliff divers leap aesthetically from almost three times the Olympic height and hit the water at speeds of 85kph, protected only by their concentration, skill and physical control. Since 2009, the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series has featured the biggest talents, the most promising newcomers, and since 2013 has also provided a platform for women. Seven tough competitions for the men, three challenges for the women – in its sixth season this jaw-dropping sport will hit new as well as proven ground in the Caribbean, the continents of North and South America and Europe between May and October to determine a new champion for both men and women. Maurice Lacroix is the official watch partner of the 2014 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series. (redbull)
