The cliff diving elite return to Polignano a Mare in Italy this weekend for the third stop of the 2019 season. This place where houses rise from the rocks has witnessed plenty of cliff diving drama over the years, and we're all set for another exciting final today. Stay with us here for updates from the third round and then full live coverage of the finals from 4:30 PM CET.
The divers are being introduced to the huge crowd that has gathered here on boats, beach, bridge and balconies. The women's third round gets underway at about 3.25 PM CET.
Speaking of the women, we've had two ladies pull out of the competition this weekend - Adriana Jimenez and Xantheia Pennisi. Let's hope they're back in action soon.
Wildcard debutante Aimee Harrison kicks off this third round for the women. Will anyone be able to stop the relentless Rhiannan Iffland today?
Yana Nestsiarava has moved into the lead with the best dive of this third round so far. Still four women to go.
Jessica Macaulay now edges into top spot, but no one is putting any real pressure on Iffland here.
Better from Lysanne Richard, but Iffland has just nailed the final dive of this round to take a 21 point lead into the final.
60,000 spectators are getting ready for the men's third round.
Wildcard Alberto Devora, who is replacing the injured Constantin Popovici, is first up to get things rolling from the 27m platform.
Six divers down in this men's third round, and it's Blake Aldridge who has just grabbed a healthy lead with a very neat Reverse 2 Somersaults 4 Twists.
Artem Silchenko became the first wildcard to score a 10 yesterday for a sensational second round dive, and he's just executed another trademark blind entry brilliantly to move into the lead.
Michal Navratil leads now with four divers left in this round.
Wow! A great dive from Andy Jones edges him ahead of Navratil.
Up steps Gary Hunt, and that's a solid dive from the Brit to move him ahead of Jones and Prygorov. Jonathan Paredes will dive last in this round. Can he reclaim the lead?
Spectacular from Paredes! The Mexican rips his Forward 4 Somersaults 1 1/2 Twists into the Adriatic Sea, and the judges reward him with 9s and 9.5s for that. He'll carry a big 17 point lead over Hunt into the final.
Aimee Harrison, the Canadian wildcard making her debut this weekend, dives first in the women's final. And that's a very nice dive, easily the best of her four from the 21m platform.
That's tough for Eleanor Townsend Smart, who can only earn 2s from the judges.
Nice from Antonina Vyshyvanova, but even better from Yana Nestsiarava, who moves into the lead with four women left to dive.
Here comes Maria Paula Quintero with a running take-off. The judges flash a few 7.5s and that moves the Colombian into the lead.
Jessica Macaulay follows Quintero with a running start, but it's a poor entry from the Brit. Just Lysanne Richard and Rhiannan Iffland left to dive now. Who will take the victory?
Another sensational dive from Iffland and she wins this stop by a huge margin. That's her hat-trick in Polignano a Mare, and it's a record-breaking fourth win in a row across seasons. Congratulations to 18-year-old wildcard Maria Paula Quintero, who takes her first podium with second place, and Yana Nestsiarava finishes third
We're into the men's final round now, and it looks like we have a great finish in store. Jonathan Paredes leads from Gary Hunt by 17 points after three dives.
Five divers down and nothing special from the 27m platform yet. Who will be first to get the crowd roaring with a big dive?
Well, Alessandro De Rose it is who whips up his home fans with a sensational Back 3 Somersaults 2 Twists. Thee 9s from the judges and the Italian moves into the lead. It will likely not be enough for a podium finish, but 60,000 spectators are delighted.
The level has dropped a little here after that dive from De Rose. Three poor efforts from Steven LoBue, Blake Aldridge and Artem Silchenko.
Not much better from Kris Kolanus, but Michal Navratil earns three 8s to move into the lead ahead of De Rose.
Nice from Andy Jones. Three 7.5s edge him in front of Navratil. Just Prygorov, Hunt and Paredes left to dive now.
9s across the board for the Brit followed by a huge splash from Paredes means Hunt takes his second victory of the season here. Like Iffland, he won by a huge margin in the end from Andy Jones in second and Michal Navratil in third.
Just like last season's finale here, Gary Hunt and Rhiannan Iffland leaped to the top of the podium once again in Polignano a Mare. Considering the wide-margin victories the champions enjoyed over their rivals today, the chasing pack have got their work cut out to try and reel them in. See you in the Azores for the fourth stop in three weeks' time.
