How to Score a Perfect 10 in Cliff Diving

Judges in Copenhagen
The athletes reveal what ingredients are needed to earn that magical scorecard

In 2018, during the 10th anniversary season of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, history was made when Gary Hunt ripped into the Copenhagen harbour and earned the hundredth 10 in the history of the sport. Considering there have been close to 4,000 individual dives in that time, and nearly 20,000 scorecards revealed, it shows just how rare it is to see that magical number rasied by the judges. So what does it take to nail the perfect cliff dive?

"It takes a lot of hard work, everything has to fall into place and the judges have to be in a good mood I think," says Gary Hunt. Former World Champion Artem Silchenko says: "it's one million details, and if one of those is wrong it's already not a 10."
