The seventh and final stop of the 2019 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series takes place in Bilbao, Spain as the champions will be crowned at the season finale.
It will be a finale as well as a premiere when the platforms on top of Bilbao's La Salve Bridge turn into the take-off strips for the year's final aesthetic free falls to define the winners of the 2019 King Kahekili Trophy and will also mark first time the women display their graceful art next to the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
With a rising number of athletes performing manoeuvres with five somersaults or five twists, and the difficulty in the women's division reaching new heights, diving poise will be combined with growing complexity when the athletes launch from a venue that is intrinsically interwoven with the modern state of art.
After the huge success of the final showdown in 2015, Bilbao's La Salve Bridge will once again play host when the world's best cliff divers decide the season's overall winners.
Catch the event on iWant via livestream on September 15, Sunday at 12:00 midnight or via VOD (video on demand).
It will then air on S+A on September 22, Sunday at 10:00 AM.
