On August 23rd, Hamburg played host to a extraordinary sporting event--urban cliff diving. The world’s top 10 cliff divers were assembled to compete in the 2008 Red Bull Cliff Diving Championship. What better endorsement for cliff diving than the energy drink that gives you wings?
Rather than jumping off of a cliff, divers jumped from atop a skyscraper. The acceleration from 0 to 90 km/h lasts only lasts 2.5 seconds.
Check out the video for footage of the winner, Colombian Orlando Duque.
Red Bull has totally nailed the extreme sports area with this stunt. If Carlsberg did extreme sports, I imagine they’d be like this.
