The Red Bull World Series Of Cliff Diving Looks Absolutely Terrifying
Unless you're Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid escaping a posse, I see no reason for cliff diving. And this Red Bull event, in which contestants plunge off of a platform 27 meters above the water -- that's 88.5 feet -- is insane. The first cliff diving competition was obviously started by a suicide attempt, and when the guy survived, others joined in thinking it was a challenge.

Gary Hunt (above) of Great Britain won the Red Bull World Series of Cliff Diving by coming in second in the season's second-to-last competition, in Bilbao, Spain. Russian Artem Silchenko, the 2013 World Series champion, won the Bilbao competition, and is second overall in the series.
