With dramatic natural cliffs lining its stunning shores, the Princess Ring on Portugal’s Azores provides the perfect backdrop for the next stop on Red Bull Cliff Diving's world tour. But the location's beauty doesn't come without challenges — athletes must focus on the dual task of executing a flawless nine-story dive while avoiding the rocks below.
