14 competitors from nine countries took part.

OVER 1000 FANS turned out to watch the latest stop on the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Tour at Serpent’s Lair, Inis Mór today.

With the sun shining, conditions were ideal for the 14 competitors jumping from a height of 27m and it made for some spectacular photography:

English diver Gary Hunt was the winner of the event, picking up his second victory of this year’s tour.

It is a victory that must feel like vindication for Hunt who had one of the worst performances of his career  - owning to high winds, rain and a bout of the chickenpox – when the series last visited the Aran Islands in 2012.
