This summer, the world's best divers will gather in Paris for the World High-Flying Diving Championship. See you on June 18, 2023, in front of the Eiffel Tower!

Calling all thrill-seekers! On Sunday June 18, 2023, Paris will welcome some of the world's best extreme divers for the " Red Bull Cliff Diving ". This high-flying diving world championship is coming to Paris for the second time, and is set to offer the public a breathtakingly unusual spectacle at Port Debilly, in front of the Eiffel Tower.

The concept? 24 men and women from the four corners of the globe throw themselves into the void above the Seine, from a diving board perched over 20 meters high (27 meters for the men and 21 meters for the women). The objective? To perform a number of extraordinary figures and spins, including somersaults, twists and baranis.

It's a crazy feat that only a few professionals can pull off, since it involves a jump from a height of 4 storeys, at a speed of 90 km/h. Among these high-flying athletes will be Gary Hunt, who will be diving at home for the occasion to get his revenge! For those who can't make the trip, this extraordinary event can also be followed via live stream on the official website.
