The penultimate stop of the season sees the world's best cliff divers return to beautiful and historic Mostar as they compete for crucial championship points from the iconic Stari Most. Three men and four women will still all fancy their chances of taking home the coveted King Kahekili trophy, but each knows that a victory here is imperative if they want to be in pole position at the final stop in Polignano a Mare, Italy, in two weeks' time. Follow all the action live here.
The action kicks off with the women's 3rd round in about ten minutes, and all the athletes are just being introduced to the fans.
And one of those wildcard debutantes, Spain's Celia Fernandez, will shortly get the women's 3rd round underway from the 21m platform.
Not a great start to the afternoon for Fernandez. A poor Arm. Forward 1 1/2 Somersaults 1/2 Twist earns the Spaniard 4, 4, 5, from the judges.
Katy Etterman is also making her debut at this iconic old bridge. 6.5, 6.5, 7 for the American with her third dive.
Xantheia Pennisi up now, and she is the youngest of the new recruits here. Three 7.5s for the Australian, and that nice start will calm any nerves.
Yana Nestsiarava is the sixth woman to dive in this third round, and the Belarusian earns 8s for her Forward 2 Somersaults 1/2 Twist.
The top four women in the overall standings will be the final women to dive in this round. Jessica Macaulay and Lysanne Richard look in great shape, and both impress the judges for 8.5s and 8s.
Oh, now this is a surprise. A rare off moment for Rhiannan Iffland as she only picks up 7, 7, 6.5 for her Reverse 1 Somersault 1 Twist.
Adriana Jimenez is Iffland's closest rival for the title this year, and a beautiful Inward 2 Somersaults 1/2 Twist earns the Mexican 8s. She moves into the lead, 10 points ahead of Richard and 20 points ahead of Iffland.
Swiss wildcard Matthias Appenzeller enjoyed a solid debut on home soil in Sisikon last month, but he gets his day off to a bad start here. 3.5, 3.5, 4 for a not too pretty Forward 3 Somersaults 2 1/2 Twists.
Newbie Nathan Jimerson tries the same dive as Appenzeller, but the American doesn't fare too much better. 5, 5.5, 5.5 from the judges.
Blake Aldridge hasn't been enjoying his best season, but he fires into the lead after collecting 8, 8.5, 8.5 for a delightful Arm. Back 2 1/2 Somersaults 3 Twists.
A poor 2nd round dive put Gary Hunt down into 9th position yesterday, but 9 is the magic number as he grabs three of them off the judges for a sensationally executed Forward 3 Somersaults 3 1/2 Twists.
Three 8.5s for Andy Jones moves the American up into second place for now. Hunt still leads with 5 divers left in this round.
Alessandro De Rose isn't happy with that dive. The Italian picks up low scores for his Arm. Back 2 1/2 Somersaults 3 Twists.
Wow! Kris Kolanus rips the Neretva river to grab three 9s from the judges. The Pole overtakes Hunt at the top.
Series leader Steven LoBue fails to impress the judges with his Back 3 Somersaults 3 Twists. Just 6.5s for the American.
Michal Navratil missed the last stop in Copenhagen after becoming a dad for the first time. But the Czech showman is on fire here, nailing his Arm. Back 2 1/2 Somersaults 3 Twists for 9, 9, 8.5.
15,000 spectators have packed the riverside here to enjoy the action. Celia Fernandez kicks off the women's final round.
New wildcards Fernandez and Katy Etterman show signs of a little inexperience with low scores to get this final started. Iris Schmidbauer can only earn 4.5, 4, 4.5 for a splashy entry.
The newbies are certainly struggling here, as now Xantheia Pennisi comes in short of vertical on her Forward 3 Somersaults 1/2 Twist.
Even the experienced Ginger Huber can't get things going. 4, 5, 5 for the American, and this final round really needs a big dive to spark things into life.
Yana Nestsiarava picks up three 6.5s for her Forward 3 Somersaults 1 1/2 Twists. Who is going to grab hold of this final?
Here we go! Jessica Macaulay rips the river with her new Reverse 3 Somersaults dive. The Brit collects 8, 8, 8.5 to power into a 28 point lead. Three women left to dive.
Rhiannan Iffland steps up for her super difficult Back 3 Somersaults 2 Twists, and it's a stunner! Three 8s for the Aussie and that could well be a winning score here.
Lysanne Richard scored a win at the last women's stop in Sisikon, but there'll be no repeat today. Three 7s are flashed from the judges for her Forward 3 Somersaults 1 1/2 Twists, and the Canadian moves into third place.
It all comes down to Adriana Jimenez then. Can the Mexican topple Iffland for a huge win?
Amazing! Jimenez holds her nerve and slices through the Neretva river for 8s. That is a massive win for the Mexican, and she now moves ahead of Iffland in the overall standings. Macaulay takes third. What a final we have in store in Italy in two weeks.
So, over to the men's final. Matthias Appenzeller gets things going, and the Swiss improves on his 3rd round dive by scoring 6.5, 6.5, 7.
Nathan Jimerson rounds off his first-ever World Series event with a decent Arm. Back 2 1/2 Somersaults 3 Twists, earning 6, 6, 6.5.
Alessandro De Rose sparks into life a little too late, but it's a brilliant dive. 9, 8.5, 8.5 for the Italian's final effort.
Sergio Guzman suffered a serious injury here last year with this dive, but he shows nerves of steel to put down a brilliant Reverse 4 Somersaults. He's into the lead with that too.
Constantin Popovici took his chance in style in Copenhagen, earning another appearance here in Mostar. And he's proving himself once again, impressing the judges with his Back 3 Somersaults 2 Twists for 9, 8.5, 8.5.
Now, here comes something special. Catalin Preda is making his debut this weekend, and is opting to perform the first ever Back 4 Somersaults 2 Twists in the World Series. Talk about confidence. Let's see what he can do...
WOW! That is unbelievable. The Romanian absolutely nails his back quad and the judges love it. 9, 9, 9.5 for that, and he moves sensationally into the lead.
Owen Weymouth moves into second place with a very nice Arm. Forward 2 1/2 Somersaults 2 1/2 Twists, and this final is getting very interesting now. 7 down, 7 to go.
Spinmaster Steven LoBue runs up for his Forward 5 Somersaults 1/2 Twist. It's good, 8.5, 7.5, 8, but it's not enough to knock Preda off top spot.
Three 7s for Blake Aldridge. The Brit is struggling with injury of late, and it seems to be showing.
Now it's Andy Jones' turn to target Preda at the top. 7, 7, 7.5 for his Forward 3 Somersaults 2 1/2 Twists won't do it though. The American moves into 3rd place.
And still the wildcard debutante Preda holds his spot in 1st place, as Jonathan Paredes falls short by just one point. Here comes Gary Hunt though, looking for a hat-trick of wins.
Hunt puts down a trademark twister, a Back 3 Somersaults 4 Twists. 8.5, 8, 8.5 for the Brit and he rockets into a 30 point lead. Two divers left to go.
Kris Kolanus with a Forward 5 Somersaults 1/2 Twist, but it's short of vertical and that's low scores for the Pole. It all comes down to Michal Navratil now. Here we go...
Navratil scores 7s, and it's Hunt who continues his stunning comeback this season with his third win in a row. Three stops ago it would have been hard to believe, but the Brit has now moved himself into the overall lead. Just 20 points separate him and Steven LoBue, and it's all set for a showdown in Italy.
What a day it was for Adriana Jimenez and Gary Hunt, who both leapfrogged their rivals at the top of the World Series standings with victory in Mostar. It means that the men's and women's title races will both go right down to the wire in Polignano a Mare in two weeks' time. Just 20 points separate the leaders from Steven Lobue and Rhiannan Iffland in second place, and it all looks set to be a stunning showdown in Italy. Don't miss it!
