With three seasons in the books, Rhiannan Iffland has made it a hat-trick of titles and become the most decorated female in the sport's history.

Since her rise as a stunning rookie-winner in her first cliff diving competition in 2016, the 27-year-old Australian has collected 11 wins in 17 events and has only twice finished outside the top three.

To complete her winning streak the queen of cliff diving also won the FINA high diving world cup last November. At around the same time, Iffland became the first person in history to dive in one of the most captivating places on earth in Australia's Northern Territory. Captioned as the "Rainbow Dive", this once in a lifetime Aussie adventure documents her quest to reinvigorate her purpose and passion for diving in the heart of Australia.

Although the laid-back Aussie-girl from New South Wales, who comes from a trampoline background, topped off another successful season with the highest single score as well as the highest competition score during the 2018 finale, 'Rhi' has a clear image of the perfect athlete: The entry and barani of Jonathan Paredes, David Colturi's take off, Gary Hunt's mind and control and the approach of Jessica Macaulay.

If you've broken all records and pushed the limits of your sport, what would you define as your season's goal? "Build bigger dives, be more consistent, but most of all enjoy the travel and adventure that comes with the competition."
