A daredevil from Britain has been crowned World Cliff Diving Champion.

Gary Hunt won the title after performing spectacular leaps all around the world.

The final stage of the competition was this 27-metre jump from a waterfall in the American state of Hawaii. (Gary's dive is the last in the sequence)

Cliff diving is a REALLY dangerous sport - it takes years of practice and should only ever be done by the experts.

Gary ended up in hospital after a dive went wrong in Italy back in August. But amazingly he came back, and won the crown with impressive dives in the next rounds.
