Red Bull Cliff Diving cancels 2020 World Series and focuses on 2021 season
In the light of health concerns and advice from the authorities, the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series season has been suspended for 2020. We trust that this decision will be understood and respected by everyone.
All efforts and energy are focused on an outstanding 2021 season, when elite divers as well as young up-and-coming talent will once again wow the crowds with their breathtaking free-falls from up to 27m.
We remain hopeful of staging a standalone event in Australia in appreciation of our loyal fans and to grant the planet's finest divers a chance to showcase their supreme acrobatic skills.
Red Bull Australia are doing everything they can to be prepared to host the event in Sydney, November 2020. The safety of the public, the divers, the crew and all others involved is the number one priority and, along with government advice, will ultimately determine the possibility of doing so closer to the date.
Athletes representing 18 different nations, including reigning champions Rhiannan Iffland (AUS) and Gary Hunt (FRA), will lead the world's oldest extreme sport to new heights in 2021, as the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series returns stronger and ready to inspire fans around the world again.
Amazing stats and records from the first decade of this fascinating sport
The 2018 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series was the 10th anniversary season of this amazing sport. With the landmark season completed and the new season approaching, it's the perfect opportunity to look back and reflect on some of the numbers, records and achievements over the last decade.
For a sport that continues to fascinate with its grand feats of acrobatic finesse and jaw-dropping skill, it's no surprise to see that the stats are just as remarkable. For example, did you know that since 2009 the World Series has travelled a total of 236,000 KM around the globe to reach its many locations? 72 stops in 25 countries to be precise, and it equates to 5.5 times around the world.
They are just a few of the interesting numbers, and there are plenty more. Watch the clip above and discover all the stunning stats from a decade of Red Bull Cliff Diving.
