Cliff Diving World Series 2012 Portugal: Platform vs. Rock
They call themselves cliff divers, but dive off of a platform. When these athletes exchange the cliff for a platform and show their jaw-dropping manoeuvres from at least 27 metres in front of a huge crowd of spectators, they transform one of the world’s oldest extreme sports into high-level competition. But, a high rock and some deep water – that is what makes a cliff diver’s heart beat faster. In this WatchMojo.com Presents video, we head to the third stop of the 2012 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series Event and Competition in Vila Franca do Campo, Portugal to meet with the competitors, who discuss the merits of diving off a cliff versus diving off a platform.
