England's Gary Hunt and Rhiannan Iffland of Australia were at their imperious best as they fought off the strong challenge of their rivals and completed their own personal comebacks to secure the title at the final stop of the 2018 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in Polignano a Mare, Italy. While for Hunt it was a record seventh King Kahekili Trophy in this 10th anniversary season, Iffland can now lay claim to being the most successful female diver in the sport's history after making it a hat-trick of World Series championship wins in front of 70,000 passionate fans at the place where houses rise from the rocks.

America's Steven LoBue, who had led the men's standings for most of the season, finished runner-up at both this stop and in the overall standings, while Mexican Jonathan Paredes' third place on Italy's Adriatic coast also mirrors his final position. In the women's, Iffland's title rivals failed to find their very best form, with Mexico's Adriana Jimenez finishing fourth on the day to fall back to second place overall, while Canada's Lysanne Richard's second place secured her the final spot on the overall podium.
