Cliff divers at Victoria Falls – level 3
Some may call them crazy ,but these cliff divers throw caution to the wind as they leap 30 metres into the Zambezi River near Victoria Falls. However, it's not something that should be tried at home, as these chaps are professionals.
Jonathan Paredes and Orlando Duque usually dive from between 26.5 and 28 metres in the Cliff Diving World Series, but it seems they've upped their game and tackled 30 metres on the river section which forms the boundary between Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Mexico's Paredes won a World Series event last year for the first time and was second at the High Diving World Cup. Columbia's Duque has thirteen world titles and holds two world records. The falls are the world's largest in combined depth and width and are also known as Mosi-oa-Tunya or the Smoke that Thunders.
Difficult words: throw caution to the wind (to do something dangerous), leap (to jump), chap (a man), up the game (to try harder), tackle (to deal with something successfully).
