Kris Kolanus and Adriana Jimenez claim wins at Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series opener

3 June 2018

Adriana Jimenez and Kris Kolanus earned their first Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series victories yesterday. The women's final saw an extremely close battle among the top four finishers. But it was Mexican born Jimenez coming out on top by just one tenth of a point over Brit Jessica Macaulay. Germany's Anna Bader finished in third place. The last year women's champ Rhiannan Iffland had to settle for fourth. On the men's side Kolanus was the last to take to the platform. A superb dive propelled the Pole to the top of leaderboard with a total score of 424.85. It was easily enough to defeat second placed Czech Michal Navratil's total of 394.90. Britain's Blake Aldridge finished with a score of 389.25 to take the final step of the men's podium.
