CLIFF DIVING

Fort Lauderdale’s Steve Lobue continues to make his mark in the world of cliff diving

This past weekend he joined 19 of the world’s top divers in Fort Worth, Texas. On Saturday, they dived from “Hell’s Gate” in Possum Kingdom Lake during the second stop of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series.

Lobue finished third out of the 12 men and seven women who dived into the freshwater reservoir from 90 feet and 60 feet, respectively, from platforms temporarily constructed on the cliff face.

The divers reached speeds of 53 mph in just three seconds before entering the water, protected by nothing but their bathing suits.

Approximately 6,700 spectators arrived by boat to watch the athletes during the series’ first-ever stop in Texas.

Lobue will head to Serpent’s Lair in Ireland as he tries to make his way into the championship of Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series.

The tour continues through Norway, Portugal and Spain and concludes with a coronation in Brazil at the end of October.
