22. Red Bull Cliff Diving
There are sports and then there are extreme sports. Cliff diving definitely falls into the latter category. tory short, athletes dive from heights of almost 30 meters (98 feet) into the water below. During the dive, they may reach speeds of over 85km/h and must perform tricks as they fall. Furthermore, they don’t wear any protective gear so the dangers are obvious.
As a spectator sport, this is unbelievable to watch. These athletes literally risk their lives in front of the fans as they perform death-defying stunts. As the name cliff-diving suggests, the Red Bull tour often takes place in places of stunning natural beauty. However, tournament stops also include high-rise buildings like Dublin’s Millenium Tower. This is definitely a crazy once-in-a-lifetime experience to watch live.
