A First Feel of the Mid-Atlantic Rocks

This is what the Azores is all about...bare feet, raw rocks, pure cliff diving.

Overseeing the action is the new sport director, the great Greg Louganis.

Women's debutante Jessica Macaulay shows no nerves during her first training session.

#

Artem Silchenko warms up...

Then later on the Russian pushes off from the platform with an armstand take-off.

#

Todor Spasov elegantly departs the cliff face.

#

Anna Bader...back in action after her baby break last season.

#

Picture perfect and pure...Steven Lobue leaps gracefully from the rocks.
