The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, established in 2009 and created by Red Bull, is an annual international series of cliff diving events in which a limited number of competitors determine the Cliff Diving World Series winner. Competitions are held in a limited number of venues around the globe. At the beginning, it was addressed only to men. It is open to women since 2013. Lysanne Richard is selected regular diver for the series.
