We explain the basics of cliff diving: why is 27Metres (and not 25 or 29) the standard height? What is the scuba divers' job? Why does it only take 5 metres of water depth? What make the athletes dive from almost three times the Olympic height -- the thrill and the challenge of this spectacular sport? And is it possible to dive head from this height? For your reference: the height is comparable to an eight-storey building, the divers fall
free for three seconds before they hit the water at 85 km/h.
