Sun Sets on Sensational 2016 World Series

Pier 7 in Dubai Marina provided a spectacular setting for the 2016 season finale.

#

12,000 spectators gathered on boats...

#

On balconies...

#

And on the winding marina promenade to watch the world's best cliff divers in action.

#

Man in the mirror...Steven LoBue sees double as he somersaults his way down to the water.

Helena Merten put herself back in the spotlight with her first podium finish since the season opener in Texas.

#

Adriana Jimenez took time to send a little birthday wish back home before grabbing her own present - third place and a first podium finish of the season.

#

Andy Jones led from start to finish in Dubai.

#

And the American couldn't quite believe at first that he'd beaten brilliant Brit Gary Hunt to victory.

#

It soon sunk in and the celebrations began.

#

What a way to finish your best season ever...Jones celebrates with his winner's trophy.

#

Jonathan Paredes cuts through the dark Dubai sky on his way to a third-place finish.

#

Gary Hunt takes home the King Kahekili Trophy once again after another victorious season.

#

But the night was made for Rhiannan Iffland, who stole the show yet again with another outstanding winning performance.

#

The Australian becomes the first ever wildcard to win the World Series after an astonishing debut season.

#

Smiles all round from the two World Series champions, and they'll be back to defend their titles in 2017.
