Gary Hunt had to settle for second place on the day after Romania’s Constantin Popovici wowed the crowd of 20,000 with a perfect dive to pick up five 10s from the judges. The 30-year-old Olympic athlete from Bucharest pocketed five 10s for a single dive in a competition where the judges pulled the highest note 8 times in the men’s. In only his first season as a permanent diver, Popovici had catapulted himself into contention for the King Kahekili trophy after a stunning start to the season saw him claim second place and a victory in his first two starts. His promising season had been put on hold for three months due to injury until Saturday when the second season success put him back into the fight for a permanent ticket for 2020. Forced into second place in Mostar, following a slow start which left him in tenth place before the final two rounds, record World Series champion Hunt successfully retained the title for the 8th time. The 35-year-old now travels to the north of Spain with the goal of securing a debut win in Bilbao. With Jonathan Paredes from Mexico completing the podium, the season’s top podium finishers stepped it up from the historic old bridge moving into the final showdown next month.
