England's Gary Hunt and Rhiannan Iffland of Australia stretched their lead at the top of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series standings with two wide-margin victories in Polignano a Mare. The Brit was at his brilliant best in Italy, finishing a full 50 points ahead of secondplaced Andy Jones of America, with Czech Michal Navratil in third. 60,000 fans watched on as Iffland also took command of the women, powering past Colombia's Maria Paula Quintero by 45 points to complete her hat-trick in this location, while Belarussian Yana Nestsiarava completed the women's podium in third. Rhiannan Iffland (AUS): “It sounds a little bit unbelievable to have 3 wins here in Italy and 3 wins this season already. I’m super stoked and ready for more. To be honest, I’m actually really enjoying the competitions this season. I just have a way from competition to training and am really enjoying more the competition. Look at this place. It’s like a paradise for cliff diving; the weather is always great, the fans as well; you step upon the platform and there’s so much energy, which is a really amazing feeling. All of the divers that come here are capable to be on the podium. It’s just consistency that really makes the difference. All the girls are diving strong and the DDs are going up. We’re raising the bar, so it’s a really nice feeling.
