You wouldn't want to belly flop! British thrill seeker wins death-defying diving contest from 88 foot cliff into freshwater pools

By ANNA EDWARDS

Are you sure you want to look down? Alain Kohl of Luxembourg waves to the crowd prior to diving from the 27.5 metre platform into the emerald green pool

You need nerves of steel - or perhaps a complete lack of common sense - to take part in this competition.
Thrill seekers scaled an 88ft cliff so they could dive into emerald freshwater pools.
As onlookers gaped, 11 competitors leaped from the platform to flip and twist for 27 metres, before hitting the water three seconds later at 85kph.

An elated Gary Hunt said: 'This year has been the hardest without a doubt.
'It felt like everyone was on top of their game and you had to be diving really well to win it.
'Waiting for the final score was one of the most nerve-wracking times of my life.'
Emerald-green water, dramatic rock formations and Omani passion provided the stage set for the final three-second flights of the year in the canyon-like valley two hours south of the capital Muscat.
Almost 300 competition dives, seven different podium finishers and four winners’ faces in natural, urban, remote and unique venues made up the fourth season of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series.
The bottom six of the 2012 field of permanent participants will have to enter qualification, together with new talent, in order to claim a ticket for next season, early next year.
