Red Bull Cliff Diving 2012

BIDMC Docs Watch the Divers Dive at the ICA.

  • Date: 8/30/2012

On August 19th and 20th BIDMC Sports Doctors Arun Ramappa, Joseph DeAngelis, and Bridget Quinn provided on-site medical coverage at the 2012 Red Bull World Series Cliff Diving Competition at Boston's Institute of Contemporary Art. Fourteen world class athletes from across the globe performed acrobatic feats off the ICA's cantilever roof 93 feet into Boston Harbor. The event's only North American stop of the 2012 tour drew 47,000 spectators to Fan Pier. The judges, including Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis, awarded first place finish to Gary Hunt of the UK. "These divers are incredible. They remind me of professional dancers," said Dr. Quinn. "Their stage just happens to be a platform and over 90 feet of air."
