About the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Championship
In its sixth year, the World Series will bridge natural venues and urban surroundings as much as it will push boundaries. The season kicks off with aesthetic leaps from the picturesque Morro Castle Fortress at the entrance of Havana Bay, on the Caribbean island of Cuba. From the environment where modernity and colonial constructions go hand-in-hand, this prestigious series of competitions comes next to the USA’s Lone Star State. At the Possum Kingdom Lake in Texas, two towering cliffs mark the entrance to a small cove and are surrounded by flat terrain. Back in Europe, the cliff diving elite returns to Ireland’s Aran Islands and the mysterious blowhole known as the Serpent’s Lair.
Mid-July, and the midway point of the 2014 World Series takes the divers back to Norway’s Kragerø, the site of 495 islands and—recalling 2010—many more boats before the divers will touch Portuguese soil once again after previous competitions in the Azores in 2012 and 2013. The second-to-last stop is in Bilbao, Spain for the business end of the World Series before the divers leap over the ocean to Brazil, where the coronation of the 2014 World Series champions will be held in Niterói at the end of October. While Christ the Redeemer watches from above, off a unique 27-metre platform structure, inspired by the architecture of Oscar Niemeyer, the male and female champions will dive to glory.
