Polignano a Mare, 23 Jul 2017

Italian wildcard Alessandro De Rose scored a sensational victory on home soil at the third stop of the 2017 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in Polignano a Mare, showing nerves of steel to produce an immaculate final dive and send 50,000 fans wild. The 25-year-old, who became the first wildcard to ever win in the men's, was overcome with emotion as his score was unveiled. He was joined on the podium by Americans David Colturi and Andy Jones in second and third respectively. Reigning champion Gary Hunt failed to make the final round and the Brit has now lost his lead in the overall standings to Colombia's Orlando Duque. In the women's it was Australian Rhiannan Iffland who rediscovered her fine form after missing the podium for the first time in nine events at the Azores two weeks ago. On a day of high drama, it was two wildcards who powered into the top three behind Iffland. Brazil's Jacqueline Valente secured the first podium of her career in second, with German Anna Bader grabbing another third-place finish, making it two in a row since returning from her baby break.
