New for 2023, each diver is required to perform a minimum of four different takeoff directions (out of five) per stop, highlighting more diversity of the dives and rewarding more well-rounded athletes. In addition, a Best Dive Award has been added at each stop presented to the athlete with the highest judges score, with the winner receiving an additional 10 points towards the final standings of the World Series.
2023 also sees the addition of three new stops to the World Series (Auckland, New Zealand; Takachiho, Japan; and Stockholm, Sweden) as well as three new athletes in the permanent lineup (Meili Carpenter, James Lichtenstein, and Miguel Garcia).
The Red Bull Cliff Diving competition is in its sixth season.
The ICA, famous for its architecturally interesting building and cutting-edge contemporary art, offers a dramatic backdrop for these visionary divers as they showcase their own take on “performance art”: spiraling, tumbling, and flipping mid-air, in sync with the cheering of sports-mad fans below.
The eleven super athletes will compete head-to-head for a shot at the prestigious Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series title, completing two required and two optional dives.
The five international judges, including four-time Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis, will award them scores from 0 to 10 based on the various aspects of the dive, the adherence to predetermined diving requirements, and the splash-less finish.
Public areas will be stationed along Fan Pier. The ICA will be open from 12 PM to 6 PM and capacity is limited. Cliff Diving ticketing is through Red Bull. Limited ICA admission tickets are available through the ICA. A Cliff Diving ticket or ICA admission ticket will be required to enter the museum.
From the iconic Boston Harbor, home of the Boston Tea Party, the local fans will witness divers who will make history, like US rookie David Colturi (23 years) and former Olympian Blake Aldridge.
This upcoming round will again highlight how, in the world of cliff diving, it’s all up in the air.
The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series stop will be free and open to the public and will feature extraordinary dives, a live emcee, jumbo screens for viewing, and premium vending.
Public areas will be stationed along Fan Pier, and the ICA will extend its hours, remaining open to the public until 9 pm that evening.
