The women's third round is underway. Four divers down and it's wildcard Antonina Vyshyvanova who has produced the most eye-catching dive so far from the 21m platform. She picks up three 8s and has the lead for now.
Lysanne Richard, who only returned from a season long injury in Texas, looks in good shape here. She steals into the lead.
Adriana Jimenez, last year's winner here, only earns 6, 6.5, 6.5 and moves into second. Yana Nestsiarava has edged into the lead. Three women left in this third round.
Here comes Rhiannan Iffland, who scored only the second ever 10 in the women's competition yesterday. She's looking to get back to winning ways after missing the podium in Texas.
And the Australian means business here. She fires into a 24 point lead, sending a message out to the rest of the women.
The men are up now for their 3rd round. Orlando Duque will not be competing after injuring his toe before the 1st round got underway on Friday.
Nothing special happening out on the 27m platform right now. De Rose, Aldridge, Guzman, and Maslouski have all dived, and we've seen lots of 5s and 6s so far.
Here we go, finally something to get excited about. Andy Jones picks up 8.5s for his Forward 3 Somersaults 2 1/2 Twists. Brilliant from the American!
Wow! Gary Hunt is back! The twisting mental block has been conquered as he nails his Back 3 Somersaults 4 Twists. 8.5, 8.5, 8.5 and the Brit powers into the lead.
Michal Navratil and David Colturi also produced some fireworks, and sit second and third respectively.
Watch out Gary, 'spinmaster' Steve LoBue is on fire again after his win in Bilbao. A magical Forward 5 Somersaults 1/2 Twist thrusts the American into top spot. Low scores for the final diver Kris Kolanus, and that's the 3rd round done.
1000 spectators have gathered on boats and kayaks to watch the world's best cliff divers in action.
The women are into the final round now. And wildcard Antonina Vyshyvanova, competing in her very first event, slices through the Atlantic waters to take the lead. Very impressive from the rookie.
Ginger Huber loves competing here, and she moves into the lead with three 7.5s.
Anna Bader is nursing an injury, but a nice dive puts her into second place. It probably won't be enough for a podium though today.
A brilliant dive from Lysanne Richard is followed up by an even better one from Adriana Jimenez. This is getting really exciting now with three women left. Jimenez leads.
Jessica Macaulay is trying to make it two podiums in a row, but that's not quite the score she wanted. Just Nestsiarava and Iffland left now.
7s for Nestsiarava lift her into third place. Here comes Iffland with the hardest women's dive in the world. Can she pass Jimenez for the win?
Amazing from the two-time World Series champion. She missed the podium in Texas but she has blown her rivals away here in Azores, winning by a massive 30 points ahead of Jimenez. That's the highest ever total score in the women's competition too. Jimenez takes second and Richard third.
So, into the men's final round now. Alessandro De Rose and Blake Aldridge have been struggling this weekend, and both go into the water with their hands raised in their final dives. The judges aren't impressed.
Wildcards Sergio Guzman and Slavik Kolesnikov can't do much better, and we're still looking for a spark to light up this men's final.
7, 7, 6.5 for Kris Kolanus's Forward 5 Somersaults 1/2 Twist. There'll be no repeat of his Texas victory today.
Can Andy Jones get things going here? Not bad...7.5, 7.5, 7 for the American.
Magnificent! David Colturi finally rips this final round into life. Three 9s for his difficult Reverse 2 Somersaults 5 Twists, and that's the highest score for an individual dive ever - 145.80pts.
Michal Navratil wants some of the action too. Three 8.5s push the Czech into second place behind Colturi.
Just 7s for Jonathan Paredes. No podium for the reigning champion today.
Just two divers to go, Gary Hunt and Steven LoBue. Can anyone catch Colturi?
Oh, that's so close for Hunt! 8, 8, 8.5 puts the Brit into second place. That's guaranteed him his first podium finish of the season. Now, can LoBue make it two in a row, or will Colturi hold on for victory?
Amazing drama here! LoBue nails his Back 3 Somersaults 3 Twists and pips his fellow American Colturi to victory by just 0.55 points. That's two in a row now for the 33-year-old following three years without a win. The 'spinmaster' has just made himself the favourite for the title this season. Hunt completes the podium in third place.
What a day it's been in the Azores. Rhiannan Iffland put a slow start in Texas behind her by blowing her rivals away for a stunning victory, while Steven LoBue secured back-to-back wins with another spinning masterclass in the mid-Atlantic. The men and women will be back in action in three weeks' time in Sisikon, Switzerland.
