12 years on the World Series, debut back-to-back wins at the 53rd attempt, numerous red-caped Superman dives from 27 meters and the most outstanding 'crowd control' as Gary Hunt calls it – that's Michal Navratil in a nutshell.

The energetic model athlete from the Czech Republic, who needs the spectators' energy as much as he needs the air to breathe to fully exploit his diving potential, competed in 75 of an overall 79 starts between 2009 and 2019, including 14 podium finishes and one 10 from the judges.

With no sign of competition-fatigue, the 1985-born who does handstands and push-ups wherever and whenever he can, will continue working on his preferred news headline: Michal Navratil won the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series!
