This weekend saw the athletes head to the Azores, the third stop in this year's Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series. The stunning setting and challenging conditions of Vila Franca do Campo combined to push the divers to produce some truly breath-taking action.

Watch here as the competitors contend with high winds and a 5am start to produce some of the purest cliff diving action yet.

The result saw Britain's Gary Hunt end Artem Silchenko's recent domination of the event to finish ahead of Orlando Duque. Mexico's Jonathan Paredes, the event's youngest athlete, also claimed a podium finish.
