A Cliff Diving Lake Party in Pictures

9000 fans gathered on boats, kayaks and paddleboards to watch the world's best cliff divers in action at Possum Kingdom Lake.

#

Earlier the crowd had been treated to a Red Bull Air Force show. Here, Jeff Provenzano lands his parachute on the back of a jet ski.

#

Ginger Huber leaps from the women's 21m platform.

#

The youngest diver in the World Series, 17-year-old Maria Paula Quintero Torres, watches on with fellow Colombians Miguel Garcia and Orlando Duque.

#

Steven LoBue takes some time out for a quick massage.

#

The flags are waving but Michal Navratil is perfectly balanced for his armstand take-off.

#

Orlando Duque couldn't continue his fine season form and missed out on a place in the final.

#

Beyond the branches at Hell's Gate, Cesilie Carlton lifts off.

#

David Colturi acknowledges his fans on the lake.

#

Then the American leaps into third place and his second podium finish in a row.

#

Adriana Jimenez kept up her strong form and pushed Rhiannan Iffland all the way.

#

But the sensational Aussie was just too good again for her rivals.

#

(L-R) Adriana Jimenez, Rhiannan Iffland and Helena Merten lift their trophies up on the podium.

#

Jonathan Paredes was back to his very best at the place where he last tasted victory in 2016.

#

And for a few moments it looked like he might have scored another victory in the US.

#

But up stepped Blake Aldridge and the Brit twisted his way majestically to a stunning victory.

#

Aldridge punches the air with delight upon surfacing from the final dive.

#

(L-R) Paredes, Aldridge and Colturi pop the corks as they celebrate on the podium.

#

The two winners show off their trophies at the end of another thrilling day of cliff diving.
