Reigning Red Bull Cliff Diving Women’s World Series champion from Australia back on top in Azores while American 'Spinmaster' makes it two in a row in Portugal. Australia's Rhiannan Iffland returned to winning ways in record fashion at the third stop of the 2018 World Series in the Azores, Portugal, blowing her rivals away with the highestever total score in the women's competition. The two-time and reigning women’s champion also scored a perfect 10 direct from the rocks on her way to victory, while her winning dive was the most difficult ever attempted by a woman. Mexico's Adriana Jimenez finished second, with Canadian Lysanne Richard in third. It was also a record-breaking event in the women’s as 26-year-old Iffland produced a seismic moment from the volcanic rocks of the Portuguese Azores, executing a perfect dive direct from the cliffs to pick up only the second ever score of 10 awarded in the women's competition. The most memorable dive of her career to date, a Forward 2 Somersaults 1 1/2 Twists, that pierced like an arrow into the mid-Atlantic waves, is now also the best score ever for a required dive in the female category (71.50pts). Having missed out on a podium place for only the second time at the season opener in Texas, the Australian bounced back in the style befitting of a two-time World Series champion. In the lead after round one, the Aussie won all rounds from 21m and finished the purest of all stops with the highest scoring competition to date. Portugal runner-up Jimenez still leads the overall standings in the women’s, with Iffland now in 2nd and surprise wildcard Jessica Macaulay from Great Britain in a fantastic overall third after finishing 5th in the Azores archipelago and becoming the best invitee once again.
Rhiannan Iffland (AUS): It was a bit disappointing this first competition in Texas, I was a little bit shaky, but it kind of motivated me and drove me to push myself for this new dive, which I just completed in the competition and which I’m over the moon about. The result I’m super happy to be standing back on top of the podium for this competition but it’s just time to keep pushing and enjoying the rest of the Series.
