Blake Aldridge, GBR
"I didn’t miss a dive all weekend and I feel like I deserve to win. After the last dive I didn’t know the
scores. It’s great to be in an event as good as this. Everybody hitting their last dives. The standard was absolutely phenomenal. It’s been a long time since my last victory in 2014 in Cuba. So I waited a long time for this and I’m just super happy with the way I performed.
My dream has always been to win the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, so to have an opportunity to do this this year is a great one. Hopefully I can go to the next two stops and I can finish on the podium and secure a top-three spot and maybe even win the Series. I enjoyed my time in Texas, but back to training as soon as I get home from here. Bosnia is next."
