Cliff Diving in Oman

Englishman Gary Hunt wins Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2012. It turned out to be a red-hot final as everyone expected and it was a battle until the very last dive. Leading the standings going into the final round, Orlando Duque, of Colombia, had the honor of taking the season’s last plunge at Wadi Shab, in the Sultanate of Oman. Hunt had just set the day’s high score of 173.25 points, so the pressure was on for the Colombian. As soon as he hit the water it was clear that the higher degree of difficulty had paid off for Gary Hunt, as the judges awarded the same number of points to the two contenders, crowning Gary Hunt the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series Champion for the third time.
