Extreme and beauty. Jumps from the bridge to the mountain river


In Mostar the penultimate stage of competitions in kliff-diving has come to the end. British and the Mexican became winners. In Bosnia and Herzegovina the penultimate stage of a world series on a diving from a 27-meter tower of Red Bull Cliff Diving has come to the end. Athletes, showing plasticity and beauty of the body, courage and force, jumped in prompt waters of the mountain Neretva River from Stary Bridge of the city of Mostar. The bridge was built by Ottoman Turks in 1566, but during the Bosnian war it was destroyed as that symbolized peaceful co-existence of the multinational population of Mostar. With the international assistance Stary Bridge was restored in 2004 and now it under protection of UNESCO. The Ukrainian athletes didn't take part in a mostarovsky stage, however among suddy there was Ukrainian Andrey Ignatenko - in the past one of the strongest kliff-divers. The winner in Mostar was British Gary Hunt who wasn't among the main favourites as the beginning of a season at him wasn't set - he has got into the lead only in the last three stages. "Last year all said to me what I yet never won against at stages where it is necessary to jump from the bridge; in it is that else nobody won here twice against. But I could. And still to me unceasingly repeat that all who won Mostar yet never in the same year won a world series. Well, to me is what to aspire to", - he has told journalists. The second place was taken by the Czech haydayver of Martine Navratil, and the owner of wildcard has got bronze (not passed qualification, but invited by organizers) from Romania Catalina Prede which for the first time participated in Red Bull Cliff Diving. In women's competitions where participants jump from height of 21 meter, Mexican Adriana Jiménez was the best. The acting champion from Australia Rihanna Iffland became the second, and the three of the best was closed by Jessica Macaulay from Britain which acted on wildcard. Winners of Red Bull Cliff Diving the Final will take place in Italian Polinyano - and - to Mara in two weeks. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
