A reverse double somersault with five twists in only 3 seconds, these are the facts of the most difficult dive ever seen during a Cliff Diving World Series event. The former Olympian Blake Aldridge made this incredible dive, got 460.35 points and finished second.



It was Gary Hunt who took an impressive win with 516 points ahead of his nearest rivals. Orlando Duque (456.20pts) completed the top-three in La Rochelle, France with a second successive third-place finish in the World Series.

Disappointment, but also relief, was the emotion felt by Steven LoBue after the US athlete struck the platform with his head in Round 2 during the execution of a twist for his triple quad dive. LoBue somehow kept his concentration and completed the dive, but afterwards was sporting a deep cut above his left eye.
