The competitors in the Red Bull cliff diving series made their fourth stop of the series on Sunday (July 14) at Malcesine, on the shores of Lake Garda in Italy.

Joining the men, who dive from a 27 metre (88 feet) platform into the Lake's waters, for the first time were four women divers, who were using a 20 metre (65 feet) platform.

The women's competition was first, with Germany's Anna Bader triumphing with Ginger Huber of USA second and Tara Hyer-Tira of USA third.

In the men's competition the current points leader and reigning champion Gary Hunt of United Kingdom was in 11th place after two rounds. But he executed a perfect front four somersault with 1 1/2 twists to produce the highest scored dive of the competition with 151.00 points. After his final dive he finished in third position.

USA's Steven LoBue of Fort Lauderdale, in second place, chose a back three somersault with three twists for his final dive to score 142.80 points.

Leader David Colturi of Ann Arbor, Michigan was last on the platform and produced a fine reverse double somersault with four twists for his final dive.

The judges' scores nudged his total to 469.40 points - 2.4 ahead of Steven LoBue - and gave Colturi his first win.

Gary Hunt still leads the championship with 650 points with Russia's Artem Silchenko, tenth in Italy, second with 540. Multiple world champion Orlando Duque of Colombia is third with 490 and David Colturi has been boosted by the Italian win to fourth place with 400 points.

Next stop is Boston, USA's fan pier on August 25.
