0.1 points decided the winner of Saturday’s third stop of the 2012 World Series on the volcanic archipelago of the Azores, Portugal. It was the closest victory to date since the kick-off of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in 2009 and made Russia’s Artem Silchenko the third winner in three competitions this season. Orlando Duque (COL) came just behind, in second place, but regained the overall lead of the 2012 World Series. He was followed by World Series champion Gary Hunt (UK). More than 2,000 spectators crowded the waters around the 28m take-off points on the offshore islet of Vila Franca do Campo to watch the 13 athletes go back to the roots and directly off the cliff face in the competition’s first two rounds.© Red Bull Media House
