first_imgOrlando Duque and Jonathan Paredes, two of the world’s best divers in water, visited Africa to jump from the magnificent Victoria Falls, the highest waterfall in the world.Both of them are well known to our public, and on the 24th of September we will be able to watch again their bravura jumps in the competition Red Bull Cliff Diving World Cup at the Old Bridge in Mostar.Victoria Falls on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe are 108 meters high and 1,708 meters wide, and it is the largest waterfalls in the world (for comparison, it is two times higher than Niagara Falls). Africans call them Mosi-oa-Tunya, or “the Smoke that thunders”, after the cloud of water that rises up to 800 meters in height.Right there went Orlando Duque and Jonathan Paredes, the world’s top cliff divers, in order to test the limits of their possibilities and to jump off the 30-meter-high cliff at these grandiose waterfalls. As if the jump itself from this height is not risky enough, below them is waiting a powerful and dangerous Zambezi River. Paredes never jumped from this height before, and Duque has not done it for nearly a decade.Both Orlando and Jonathan have a special bond with Mostar: Orlando is regularly coming to the Neretva River and the Old Bridge, and he is a favorite of the audience in Mostar; while Jonathan, who is the great hope of cliff diving, achieved his first and so far only victory in Red Bull Cliff Diving World Championship in Mostar last year.Our audience will have the opportunity to watch both of them performing spectacular acrobatics from the Old Bridge in Mostar on the 24th of September this year, when the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Cup will be hosted in the city on Neretva for the second time.Until then, enjoy watching the VIDEO with their jumps at Victoria Falls.At the Red Bull TV, you can take a look at the entire 45-minute documentary “The Smoke That Thunders”, which follows the African adventure of these two divers.(Source: klix.ba)last_img
