Gary Hunt Wins in the First Ever Cliff Diving Race in Texas

British cliff diver Gary Hunt wins the second stop of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series at Hell's Gate in Possum Kingdom Lake on Saturday. Gary Hunt ended the competition with a new personal best score (and new World Series record) of 526.40 points, diving to victory ahead of Russia's Artem Silchenko and the USA's Steven LoBue.

An epic final round saw some of the best diving yet in what is now the sixth season of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, with the top seven athletes from the 12 who started the competition throwing some incredible dives from 28 metres. Hunt's final dive, a front triple somersault with three and a half twists, received three 9.5s from the five international judges, and was nothing short of breathtaking.

There were also top marks for style and poise in the first-ever Women's World Series competition - the first of three in 2014 - which saw seven athletes compete from a 20m platform. Texan Rachelle Simpson, who hails from San Antonio, claimed first place, with Anna Bader, of Germany, in second, and fellow Texas native Cesilie Carlton, in third.
