World Aquatics Championships: Gary Hunt reclaims high diving title with astonishing final dive
Britain's Gary Hunt reclaimed his high diving title at the World Championships in Gwangju, South Korea.
The 35-year-old was first crowned world champion in 2015 but finished fifth at the last edition two years ago.
Hunt, a seven-time Cliff Diving World Series champion, was fourth after two rounds but moved into the podium positions after the penultimate round.
He scored a total of 442.20 points to win gold, ahead of American Steven LoBue and Mexico's Jonathan Paredes.
Hunt scored 156 points with his final dive - a back triple somersault - to move from bronze position into gold.
"This means a lot," Hunt told BBC Sport. "I've had ups and downs and I started to question whether I wanted to stay in this but I found a love again for the sport and I'm reaping the benefits."
