What does it mean for you to take part in the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series?
It’s a big experience for my profession which I want to continue. I hope to get a good result.
Kris is one of Poland’s foremost diving talents and wants to prove this from the 27m-high platform. Having taken part in qualifying in Australia a year ago, Kris has used the past season to get more experience and showed promise when he competed in front of 70,000 spectators in La Rochelle as a wildcard. Being selected again for the qualification competition is a sign that he is on the right path.
