World Champion Hunt ends season on winning note

Having already been crowned this season’s Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series champion, Gary Hunt made sure he ended the 2014 campaign on a high note.

The British diver – who wrapped up the title in Bilbao, Spain, last month – won the season-ending stop at the Ik Kil natural well deep in ancient Mayan heartland of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula.

Hunt pulled off a near-perfect execution of a Triple Quad dive at the natural wonder – a dive that helped him beat Russia’s Artem Silchenko in second and American David Colturi in third.

The win in Mexico was Hunt’s fourth victory out of the seven World Series events this year.

American Rachelle Simpson won the third and final stop of the women’s tour to become the first ever Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series women’s champion.

Simpson dominated the tour winning all three stops.
