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 the divers on their nerve-jangling climbs and exhilarating leaps
When the world's best cliff divers entered the lagoons of El Nido for the first stop of the 2019 season, they entered paradise. But diving direct from the cliffs in such a remote location required some hair-raising rock climbs and nerve-jangling steps up to their perch.
Watch the POV footage above and join the divers up close on their journey from lagoon to cliff top, and back down to the lagoon again in a series of stunning 3-second freefalls.
