The men’s competition impressed with Michal Navratil and Lysanne Richard securing their second wins of the season at the iconic Stari Most bridge. Navratil is on a roll after his first ever win in Wales two weeks ago with another commanding display of diving from 27.5m, once again powering past reigning champion Gary Hunt from England with his final dive of the day. America’s David Colturi secured the perfect send off in his farewell appearance before shoulder surgery, rising to his first podium finish of the season in third place.
From Bosnia and Herzegovina the World Series travels on to the season’s penultimate stop and will hit new grounds in Japan in three weeks’ time.
