STORY: Gary Hunt’s winning run in the Red Bull Cliff Diving world series came to an end at the hands of Russia’s Artem Silchenko at Polignano a Mare in Italy on Sunday (August 28).

Hunt was aiming for his fourth consecutive victory but failed even to make the final round for only the third time in his career.

Silchenko produced his first victory on the tour since 2014 thanks to a brilliant final dive which left American Steven LoBue second and Jonathan Paredes third.

Despite his disappointment in Polignano a Mare, Briton Hunt still leads the championship with 740 points from Mexico’s Parades second on 660, 200 ahead of third placed Andy Jones of the US.

Silchenko’s victory boosted him into sixth place in the standings with four events still to go before the end of the season.
