Australia, France triumph in cliff diving contest

STORY: Having already won the last five events, Iffland added yet another victory to her resume, and claimed the overall title in the process with one stop still to come in Sydney.

Canada's Molly Carlson secured her sixth podium spot this season in second, while Australia's Jessica Macaulay was third.

"This one really means a lot. It's still sinking in to be honest...I had done the math, and I knew that I could go into Sydney, to my home event, with the title already wrapped up so it's an amazing feeling and I can't wait to compete in Sydney and just have as much fun as I can and to really live in that moment," said 31-year-old Iffland after her triumph.

Nine-time World Series champion Gary Hunt executed under pressure to take the men's title in Italy, and jumped to first in the overall standings.

The Frenchman's win was his sixth victory at the iconic location.

20-year-old Aidan Heslop of Great Britain continued his brilliant season by finishing second, and also sits in second on the overall rankings.

Romania's Catalin Preda rounded out the podium in third, which is also where he rests in the overall standings behind Hunt and Heslop.

The trio will fight it out for the World Series title in Australia on October 15.

"Well it's winner takes all in Sydney. That makes it all the more exciting. You don't have to worry about people coming in second place or third place, it's you win, you win. So we'll see," said Hunt.
