Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series Final 2012 At Wadi Shab
Merge 104.8 was there to witness the world’s best cliff divers in action at Wadi Shab on September 27th as Gary Hunt seized glory at the series 2012 final held in Oman. The Englishman reigned supreme again, winning his third title in a row, barely snatching victory from Columbia’s pride Orlando Duque, who had been leading the standings going into the final round. With the two divers battling head to head, Orlando’s final jump was all that kept him from glory. However, he required absolute perfection and a higher score than Gary for his final jump if he was to top the Brits’ ‘higher degree of difficulty’ score.
Taking the last plunge at the beautiful Wadi Shab, Orlando only managed to tie scores with Gary on the final jump, resulting in Gary walking away with the crown for his more difficult dive attempt earlier. Gary set the day’s high score of 173.25 points.
