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.
Join Iffland and Duque on their memorable diving visit to Jodhpur
Rhiannan Iffland and Orlando Duque have showcased their cliff diving skills at some of the most amazing locations on the planet, and recently the pair added the historic Toorji Step Well in the 'Sun City' of Jodhpur to their exclusive and enviable list. Built almost 300 years ago by Queen Maharaja Abhay Singh's Consort, today the Step Well serves as Jodhpur's unofficial local swimming pool, frequented by children and some adults who enjoy having a dip and a dive into cool waters.
The Colombian legend and the unbeatable Aussie were awestruck by their latest diving playground, and they also took some time out to experience some of the local culture in the world's 6th largest country.
Watch the clip above to see and hear more about their unique diving adventure in the Sun City.
