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.
Red hot title fights will reignite in Texas after mid-season break
After a five week break, the 2017 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series will fire back up at Hell's Gate in Texas, with two title fights in full swing. Orlando Duque is the surprise men's leader heading into the second half of this already thrilling season, while reigning champion Rhiannan Iffland is the women's front-runner once again as she returns to the scene of her first-ever victory.
A win for the leaders would allow them to put one hand on the King Kahekili trophy in this six-stop season, so the chasing pack will need to turn up the heat in the Lone Star State.
