Britain's Gary Hunt has taken victory in the Oman leg of the Cliff Diving World Series title.
The British defending champion won his third-successive series on Thursday by taking the final stage of the 2012 season in Wadi Shab, Oman.
Over five thousands people gathered as Hunt lept from the clifftops, performing his trademark 'triple quad' dive to set a points total of 506.85, in a fall which took nearly four seconds from jump to splash.
"It was really the best competition I've ever done," Hunt said. "I've never scored over 500 and to do it today when it counts I just can't believe it. I'm still a bit in shock."
Hunt held off a strong challenge from nine-times world champion Orlando Duque, who came second in Oman and in the overall championship.
United States diver David Colturi finished third in Oman while his compatriot and 2012 newcomer Steven LoBue claimed third place overall.
