Polignano a Mare, 13 Sep 2015

After previous visits to this part of Puglia in the first two years of the World Series in 2009 and 2010, Red Bull Cliff Diving returned to Polignano a Mare in 2015. It was the penultimate stop in the men's series of competitions, and the third and final event in the Women's World Series.

Back in the European Mecca of cliff diving! The second-to-last stop was held in the very south of Italy, in Polignano a Mare, where cliffs are the foundation of everyday life, with the town itself perched on the precipice. Hosting the World Series for the third time after 2009 and 2010, the Italian fans saw the coronation of this year's women's champion, Rachelle Simpson.

In the men's event, Gary Hunt secured his sixth win in seven stops. Joining him on the podium was Orlando Duque in 2nd place, and Jonathan Paredes in 3rd.
