DUQUE DECIDES HEAVYWEIGHT BATTLE
Orlando Duque wins first stop of Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2011
The navel of the world – that’s what Rapa Nui is for its inhabitants and that’s what the remote island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean was for the world elite of high diving this weekend. The kick-off competition of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2011 was affected by the Tsunami warning but blessed by the Manu Tara’s – the lucky bird’s – presence and watched by an eager audience of 2.000 people. With an outstanding performance, nine-time world champion Orlando Duque, from Colombia, bettered his competitors by more than 40 points to take victory in the first competition.
