"I'm Back, Baby!"

Rhiannan Iffland
Rhiannan Iffland is back doing what she does best in beautiful France

It's been almost a year now since the world last saw 4-time Red Bull Cliff Diving champion, Rhiannan Iffland, in full flight. Following her sensational 'perfect season' in 2019, the Australian then embarked on a diving project in India with Orlando Duque in November. Little did we know back then that it would be 11 months before we got a glimpse of the star spreading her wings again. 

But the moment cliff diving fans around the world have been waiting for is finally here. At last, after what has been a mostly miserable 2020, we can enjoy a little taste of what we've been missing. Iffland and her partner and coach, Todor Spasov, have recently dusted off their diving swimwear and put their skills to the test at two beautiful bridge locations in France - Carrefour du Pont de la Balme and Pont de Groslée - both in the Rhône-Alpes region.

It may not match up with the thrill of competing at the World Series, but after so long away it was enough to bring out a joyful cry of 'I'm back, baby!" from Iffland.
