Global Cliff Diving Competition Debuts in Texas
by BWW News Desk - Mar 27, 2014

DALLAS, TX - Cliff diving is the purest extreme sport on earth. Take a high cliff, deep water and courage. No additional machinery, no protection whatsoever, just absolute concentration and complete body control. Diving from heights of around 90ft, the equivalent of an eight-story building, has a long tradition but remained largely in the shadows until the start of a series of competitions in May 2009, featuring the world's best high divers. It is a series that has since pushed the limits of the sport and impressed more than 650,000 spectators on site worldwide. The 2014 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, the pinnacle of cliff diving competition in its sixth season, will hit new as well as proven ground in the Caribbean, the continents of North and South America, as well as Europe, to determine a new champion for both men and women.
