Stari Most landmark in Bosnia and Herzegovina sees Hunt and Jimenez win.
England’s Gary Hunt and Adriana Jimenez of Mexico took crucial victories at the penultimate stop of the 2018 World Series in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina on Saturday. Diving from the old bridge is a local tradition in Mostar where youngsters regularly jump into the Neretva river.
Both divers leapfrog the current men’s and women’s leaders, Steven LoBue of the USA and Australia’s Rhiannan Iffland. They now head to the final showdown in Polignano a Mare, Italy, in two weeks’ time with a 20 point lead each.
Czech Michal Navratil followed Hunt in second place, with wildcard Catalin Preda of Romania completing a stunning debut from 27m in third place. In the women’s, reigning champion Iffland finished runner-up while British wildcard Jessica Macaulay completed the podium.
