Friends in High Places

Alessandro De Rose, Sergio Guzman and Alain Kohl cheer on their fellow competitors in Copenhagen.

#

The USA cliff diving team is symbolic of the great friendships that exist in this sport. L-R: David Colturi, Steven LoBue, Kyle Mitrione, Andy Jones.

#

Rookie Helena Merten was taken under the wing (and towel) of Adriana Jimenez at the first event of 2016 in Texas.

#

Smiles and selfies are never far away when these athletes are competing. Posing for this one are Americans Cesilie Carlton (L) and Rachelle Simpson.

#

And the men are always on the lookout for a fun photo opportunity too.

#

Perhaps the closest two competitors on the tour - Jonathan Paredes (L) and his mentor Orlando Duque.

#

Jaki Valenti and Yana Nestsiarava - pure friendship on the pure Azores rocks.

#

A boat ride for the boys, who always make a point of enjoying activities together on location.

#

The love and support for their fellow competitors is what really sets these athletes apart from many other individual sportsmen and women.

#

Rhiannan Iffland and Blake Aldridge find the perfect spot for a snap in stunning Polignano a Mare.

#

Adriana Jimenez feels the full support and respect of the other women as she steps out of the water in Italy.

#

Like young buddies going out for a spin together in windy Wales.

#

Images like this are not a rarity in the cliff diving family, as Alessandro De Rose gives Ginger Huber a hug.

#

Rivals by day, dinner partners by night - Rhiannan Iffland and Lysanne Richard fought for the title in 2016, but foes they certainly weren't.

#

Title-chasing Gary Hunt was the first to congratulate Sergio Guzman on his first-ever victory in Shirahama, Japan.

#

And at the season finale in Dubai, Steven LoBue couldn't wait for winner and compatriot Andy Jones to leave the water before celebrating with him.
