Red Bull Cliff Diving cancels 2020 World Series and focuses on 2021 season
In the light of health concerns and advice from the authorities, the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series season has been suspended for 2020. We trust that this decision will be understood and respected by everyone.
All efforts and energy are focused on an outstanding 2021 season, when elite divers as well as young up-and-coming talent will once again wow the crowds with their breathtaking free-falls from up to 27m.
We remain hopeful of staging a standalone event in Australia in appreciation of our loyal fans and to grant the planet's finest divers a chance to showcase their supreme acrobatic skills.
Red Bull Australia are doing everything they can to be prepared to host the event in Sydney, November 2020. The safety of the public, the divers, the crew and all others involved is the number one priority and, along with government advice, will ultimately determine the possibility of doing so closer to the date.
Athletes representing 18 different nations, including reigning champions Rhiannan Iffland (AUS) and Gary Hunt (FRA), will lead the world's oldest extreme sport to new heights in 2021, as the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series returns stronger and ready to inspire fans around the world again.
The 10th anniversary season of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series was billed as a landmark season that was sure to be the closest and most exciting one yet. It had a lot to live up to, but after seven unforgettable stops across the world - where the athletes displayed their skills from raw rocks, bridges and even a private balcony - it's safe to say that 2018 delivered in sensational style. Rivers, lakes and oceans were ripped, records were broken left, right and centre, and it all boiled down to the closest ever season showdown in the home of European cliff diving.
Watch the clip and relive all the best moments from a landmark season that will live long in the memory.
