The World Series hits new grounds in one of the oldest cities in the world

This event will be LIVE on July 14 at 5.30 PM local time (2.30 PM GMT) on www.redbullcliffdiving.com, Red Bull TV, Facebook & Youtube.

Going into the second half of the season, the World Series hits new grounds off the coast of Beirut's neighbourhood of Raouché, Lebanon. Despite being in the country's largest city, the divers will launch from the pure cliff face off the natural landmark Raouché, also known as 'Pigeon Rocks'.

These limestone outcrops grow up to 40m above sea and are just offshore with one of the rock formations having an archway eroded through it. Standing like gigantic sentinels, the two huge pillars are a popular destination for locals and visitors alike.

Beirut's primary landmark is the first thing you see from the airplane window when landing in Lebanon's capital, one of the oldest cities in the world.

Voted the must-visit city for the year 2019 by World Tourists, the acrobatic cliff diving feats from up to 27m will only spice up this label and leave the fans below the rocks in awe.
