At each stop during the 2020 season, the eight permanent female divers will be joined by four wildcard divers. Although different wildcards will compete at different events, and some will appear more than others, they can each earn points and ranking in exactly the same way as the permanent athletes.
Anna Bader (Germany)
Anna Bader competed as a permanent diver in 2018, but injuries were to blame for her lack of form and the German is once again a wildcard in 2020.
Adriana Jimenez (Mexico)
In 2018, Adriana Jimenez enjoyed her best season to date, and with two wins and a second place to her name that year she was the epitome of consistency. But, after only competing at four stops last year, the 34-year-old could not qualify and will return as a wildcard this season.
Anna Bakunovytska (Ukraine)
Anna Bakunovytska will compete in the World Series for the first time in 2020, becoming the second female Ukrainian diver after Antonina Vyshyvanova.
Genevieve Bradley (USA)
2020 will be the second season America's Genevieve Bradley gets to show her talent from 21m in the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series. Last year the 27-year-old finished 7th and 10th in her two appearances.
Meili Carpenter (USA)
The 2020 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series is the first year Meili Carpenter will be invited as a wildcard. The 31-year-old will support a strong US team.
Celia Fernández (Spain)
Bubbly Madrid-born Celia Fernández considers herself a childish character, who enjoys playing all kinds of kids' games whenever her job as an engineer allows her. The former gymnast is the first Spanish athlete to take part in the women's category.
Aimee Harrison (Canada)
25-year-old Aimee Harrison placed 7th in her only start to date, and will again be invited to compete as a wildcard from the 21m platform. She is the second female athlete from Canada.
Ginger Huber (USA)
After competing as a permanent diver during every season since the women's World Series began, Ginger Huber was unable to hold onto her status in 2018. The 45-year-old had two 6th place finishes last season and will be back again in 2020.
Helena Merten (Australia)
Helena Merten grabbed six podiums in 14 starts back in 2016 and 2017. After missing the last two seasons due to contractual obligations, the 24-year-old will make her return at Possum Kingdom Lake this summer.
Xantheia Pennisi (Australia)
The Brisbane born and bred is the female young gun in this group of new wildcards. At 21, her sportive career has already taken a few turns from gymnast to traditional diving, but it was cliff diving that sparked something in her. A show in Australia, together with Rhiannan Iffland was the beginning of it all. A 5th place finish at the Bilbao finale last season is her best to date.
Ginni van Katwijk (Netherlands)
Ginni van Katwijk will celebrate her debut in 2020, becoming the first ever Dutch diver to compete in the World Series.
Antonina Vyshyvanova (Ukraine)
In 2018 China based Antonina followed her father, who participated as a wildcard in the Turkey-leg of the 2009 World Series. After six appearances in the last two seasons, the 21-year-old will be aiming to fulfil her potential and earn a first podium finish in 2020.
