The Red Bull Cliff Diving Championships are over – spectacularly as you can imagine. Although Gary Hunt’s dive was superb, Artem Silchencko’s was even more so and this, the final event, saw him take 1st place on the podium at last.
The Top 6 through to next year’s events without the need to qualify are:
|1.||Gary Hunt (C)||GBR||125|
|2.||Artem Silchenko (DNS in Stop 2)||RUS||91|
The Ukraine must have been proud of their own boy, Sasha Kutsenko, who came in 4th in the Yalta competition and 7th in the overall competition.
I’ll miss this competition – an extreme sport combined with superb athleticism, bucket-loads of courage and exquisite grace.
