    The long process of learning a new cliff dive. In cliff diving, most elements are high: the number of somersaults and twists, the entry speed, as well as of course the take-off height. However, when starting to build a new dive, the professional athletes of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series go back to poolside and start with the ‘basic maths’ of their sport; breaking the dive into different parts, just to put it all together again when diving from 28m, and this includes various lead-ups and ‘building blocks’, and sometimes learning the hard way... Building a new dive is a long, creative and intense process. But it pays off! © Red Bull Media House

        In the competition divers need to perform 4 dives each. Two easy dives called required dives and two difficult dives called optional dives. The easy dives are to show form and grace and the difficult dives are about doing as many somersaults and twists as possible. There are rules to follow about the types dives the athletes can perform and the direction of take off as well. How hey choose it? How they decide execute one dive and not a different one. © Red Bull Media House

          The hat-trick in wins went to the apparently unstoppable 30-year-old Gary Hunt, while Colombian legend Orlando Duque (478.70pts.) made it his third podium in three competitions and settled old scores with this location as he had finished bottom of the standings after a failed dive the previous year. Completing the podium was the third winner of a World Series, Russia’s Artem Silchenko (466.90pts.), who earlier beat American Andy Jones in his head-to-head by another very narrow margin, and leapt up from seventh place going into the final round of dives to secure a top-three finish thanks to a brilliant execution of his back armstand dive with a blind entry. © Red Bull Media House

            With two 10s from the judges and the highest-scoring three-second dive of the whole competition, Englishman Gary Hunt makes it three wins out of three with a new personal-best score of 533.90 points in Texas. The season’s third stop operated under a revised schedule due to the probability of severe weather conditions in the region and produced a World Series champions’ podium, as Orlando Duque, from Colombia, and Artem Silchenko, from Russia – the winners in 2009 and 2013 – completed the top-three from the 27m platform. The women’s competition, which kicked off the 2015 season here at Possum Kingdom Lake, sees Rachelle Simpson, the reigning champion from San Antonio, Texas, take first place from twice the Olympic height. © Red Bull Media House

              During the season opener in Cartagena, the Divers showed they have spent their off-season perfecting their technique, learning new dives and adding more difficulty to the World Series. Now it is time for the second stop in the French La Rochelle. It was later the overall champion Artem Silchenko who took victory during the divers’ last appearance in 2013 in front of the biggest crowd ever for a World Series event of 70,000 spectators. Can he repeat this feat this year or will four-time champion and kick-off winner, Gary Hunt, occupy the top of the podium once again? © Red Bull Media House

What is the most important thing to see and check before a dive? Can you ‘train’ your eyes to find reference points quicker? What do the athletes see in the air and how important are the eyes for a cliff diver? © Red Bull Media House
