For Bader it was a great excuse to team up with an old friend: "We've dived together before, but this one was the first one in a long time. A nice revival. Obviously, he's *the* cliff diver and it's always an honour and lots of fun to dive with him."

After missing out on the overall podium for the first time in 2016, Duque is raring to go again this year: "Everyone is ready. It's nice to start to getting into the rhythm of diving again and I think I'm ready. The guys are ready. It's exciting."
