Red BullRed Bull1The 30-year-old came to the final stop not only to receive the trophy for his fourth World Series title, but also to take his fourth victory of 2014. With exactly 500 points, he beats the 2013 World Series winner Artem Silchenko, in second, and the USA’s David Colturi, in third place. The seventh stop, hosted on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula this Saturday, also determined the top five athletes from 27m to prequalify for next season. Athletes from England, Russia, the USA and Colombia have secured spots in the 2015 World Series, the others must compete in qualification in February. After an action-packed year with stops all over Europe, the Caribbean and North America, four competition winners, and a new face on top of the podium, the sixth season celebrated a showdown in style in the majestic Ik Kil cenote. The new season will start in April 2015!
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, North and Latin 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.
