England's Gary Hunt and Adriana Jimenez of Mexico took a huge step in the fight for the King Kahekili trophy with crucial victories at the penultimate stop of the 2018 World Series in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Success at the historic Stari Most saw both divers leapfrog the current men's and women's leaders, Steven LoBue of the USA and Australia's Rhiannan Iffland, to head to the final showdown in Polignano a Mare, Italy, in two weeks’ time with a 20 point lead each. Czech Michal Navratil followed Hunt in second place, with wildcard Catalin Preda of Romania completing a stunning debut from 27m in third place. In the women's, reigning champion Iffland finished runner-up, meaning she has now gone two events without victory from 21m for the first time in her World Series career, while British wildcard Jessica Macaulay completed the podium in third place. The best dive of the day wasn’t enough for title holder Iffland to pull ahead of 33-year-old Jimenez, who now holds two season victories after a clean display of dives which saw her beat the Australian’s competition high-score. As the season comes down to the wire, Australia’s record winner travels to Italy with a confidence boost nevertheless, as she managed to pull off a good competition into the challenging Neretva River after a knee injury at the same spot in 2017. With another impressive podium finish for 25-year-old Macaulay, the wildcard holds every chance of jumping on the overall podium after she edged out comebacker Lysanne Richard to fourth place in today’s fourth women’s competition. A mere 20 points separate the Brit from the overall top three going into the decisive leg in Italy.
Gary Hunt (GBR): “It was a great competition! I made a mistake yesterday but I’ve been in that situation before and I tried to remember those times when I had to come back; that’s what I managed today. It definitely feels great to come back having won the competition last year. Last year they told me I’ve never won diving off a bridge before; this year they said nobody has ever won this competition twice. I managed to do that. They’ve also said whoever won here in Mostar, has never won the World Series. So I have one more job to do.”
