Hunt unstoppable in Red Bull Cliff Diving


Champion Gary Hunt (511.60 points) made it four wins out of four in the 2015 edition of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series on Saturday.

The Brit finished ahead of compatriot Blake Aldridge (476.85) and Colombian cliff diving legend Orlando Duque (463.60) to take the win in Copenhagen.

31-year-old Hunt delivered yet another display of near cliff diving perfection and in his current form is unbeatable.

Blake Aldridge and Orlando Duque were the two athletes who pushed the champion the closest, as 14 of the world’s best cliff divers leapt 28 metres from the roof of the Copenhagen Opera House.

Hunt said his confidence is only growing more and more following previous victories in Colombia, France and the USA earlier this season with another maximum haul of 200 World Series points in Copenhagen to extend his lead at the top of the overall rankings.

Orlando Duque was pleased to extend his own 100 percent record of finishing on the podium at all four World Series events this year with a third-placed finish in Denmark.

Next stop in the World Series is the Portuguese archipelago of the Azores on July 18.
