The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series made it’s way to the Azores this weekend.

Initially rough seas threatened to derail the dive, but after only one practice run, competitors took the plunge.

Rankings leader Artem Silchenko was looking to take a third consecutive victory but only managed to claim fourth on the day.

Competition rookie, 23-year-old Mexican, Jonathon Paredes took third for his first podium of the series.

The competition’s elder statesman, 38-year-old Columbian Orlando Duque claimed second to maintain overall third in the rankings, with a 90 point gap between him and Paredes.

Great Britain’s Gary Hunt took first place, and also knocked Silchenko off first place in the overall rankings.

The World series travels to Italy next in the fourth round of the eight stop tour.
