Gary Hunt has taken part in each of the 50 World Series stops and also managed to win half of them. He has been crowned World Series champion five times and is currently enjoying a very successful time of his career.

Hunt managed five consecutive victories in the World Series Event up until 2015 – this has been the longest successive series of victories in the World Series so far. Gary is the most successful diver in the World Series claiming 28 victories. Also in 2015, he ended up as World Champion in High Diving in Kazan to add to his silver medal that he won in the World Championships in Barcelona.

Gary Hunt has gone from strength to strength ever since he became runner-up in the first World Series in 2009. Achieving six podium finishes in 2010 placed Hunt above previous champion, Orlando Duque, in Hawaii. Hunt ended up as champion in 2011 and 2012 before he had to give up his title to Russia’s Artem Silchenko in 2013. However, Hunt reclaimed the overall title in 2014 and 2015.

Before Gary started competing in High Cliff Diving, he was a prospective Olympic diving hopeful who won several medals at the Great British Diving Championships. He also won bronze at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne in the 10m Synchro event.
