Gary Hunt has made it four wins out of four in the 2015 World Series with victory in Copenhagen!!!
All eyes are now on the last man up on top: Gary Hunt!
It's good, but will it be good enough? 8s from the judges, and Blake is assured of second place...
Now it's the turn of Blake Aldridge with another back triple triple...
It's not quite enough... only 7.5s from the judges and unless there's a big slip-up from Gary Hunt, Duque is not going to be on the top step of the podium. Third place is assured, however.
Orlando Duque is up on the platform and knows that he must hit his back triple somersault with three twists almost perfectly if he's to claim victory...
Czech Michal Navratil is first up on the 28m platform for the final... He's not in contention for the win, but will be delighted to make the final here in Copenhagen.
And if you haven't voted for your winner in our poll then now is most definitely the time!
Just 10 points separates the top-three going into the final round of cliff diving at the opera house. Gary Hunt, Blake Aldridge and Orlando Duque are way out in front, but for whom will the champagne taste the sweetest? We'll be back shortly with updates from the all-important final...
Now, here's a shock! David Colturi is out after missing his attempt at a triple quad! The American has come up short in his head-to-head against Jonathan Paredes and does not have enough points to dislodge Steven LoBue in the 'lucky loser' spot either. A very disappointing end for Colturi...
That's a brilliant execution from Blake Aldridge! The Brit hits the hardest dive in the world, a reverse double somersault with five twists, to advance in his head-to-head against Todor Spasov. It also puts him in second place in the total scores behind Gary Hunt!
Artem Silchenko executes his big back armstand dive, with a DD of 6.2, but there’s not going to be a repeat of the win he achieved here back in 2013. A short landing on entry and 5s from the judges mean that he’s out of the competition and it’s his friend Anatoliy Shabotenko who will advance to the final.
Steven LoBue hits a triple quad - the dive that Hunt himself introduced to cliff diving - for 7.5s. It's not enough to beat Orlando Duque in the head-to-head, but it does put the American in contention for the 'lucky loser' spot...
Gary Hunt's just nailed the first huge dive of the day - a front triple somersault with three and a half twists - for 9s from the judges! He's going to take some stopping...
The second round of the head-to-head is when the athletes pull out their harder dives and bigger tricks. These dives contain multiple flips and twists and can catapult a diver into first place, or equally see them drop points and possibly miss out on a place in the final...
Half an hour to go until the serious business of competition and 14 of the world's best cliff divers putting it all on the line from 28 metres! Time to put on that game face and shake off those jelly legs!
What you see here (and it's worth the wait!) is Blake Aldridge performing the world's hardest dive during this afternoon's warm-up. It's a reverse double somersault with five twists and it's got a Degree of Difficulty of 6.3. If he executes it well in competition, he could be looking at a place on the podium...
We may have jinxed it with the weather! We've just had a pummelling of hailstones to go with the rain and the wind of earlier in the week! Fortunately the clouds are passing and there's still 45 minutes to go until the start of competition.
The highest score for a single dive in Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series competition actually came at this very venue in 2013, when a back armstand from Russian Artem Silchenko achieved a so-far unsurpassed 183.00 points. Gary Hunt came very closing to beating that score at the last stop in Texas, but the record still stands... Will anyone break it today?
If you're wondering how these dives are going to be scored, then here's how: Each dive is assigned a Degree of Difficulty (which generally speaking increases according to the number of somersaults or twists within the dive) - this varies from 3.8 (for the least difficult dives) to 6.3 for the most difficult. Five judges then score the dive, with the highest and lowest scores discarded. The remaining three scores are then added together and multiplied by the Degree of Difficulty to give the points total for the dive.
We've got an expectant crowd gathering in Copenhagen! It's nearly show time!
Call back on Saturday at midday (CEST) for live coverage of finals day of the fourth stop in the 2015 World Series in wonderful Copenhagen!
