... and the perfect season goes to: Rhiannan Iffland, the unstoppable Australian. In 2019 she enjoyed the type of year most athletes can only dream of, after she won all seven Red Bull Cliff Diving stops to complete an historic perfect season and wrap up her fourth title in a row.

Not only that, she entered the last round of the 2019 FINA World Championships in Gwangju, South Korea outside the medals but hit back with a sensational dive to snatch gold by just 0.15 of a point - her second in a row after her first gold at Budapest 2017.

It has been a remarkable four years for the 28-year-old since she started competing seriously, however the Newcastle native still believes that she has more to learn and there are plenty more trophies that she can secure in her sport.

Since her rise as a stunning rookie-winner in her first cliff diving competition in 2016, the now most decorated female in the sport's history has collected 18 wins in 24 events and has only twice finished outside the top three.

If you've broken all records and pushed the limits of your sport, what would you define as your season's goal? "I have some more dives in my locker, though, and I think I have a long career ahead of me working little by little."
