Carlson second, Macaulay fourth at Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series event in Paris
Molly Carlson earned her second podium finish of the season, and Jessica Macaulay was fourth on Saturday at the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series stop in Paris, France. Aimee Harrison finished 10th.
The second stop of the 2022 season on the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series took place on River Seine in Paris and featured 12 divers in the final round.
Carlson, the youngest female to ever win a Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series event (June 4 in Boston), finished with a combined score of 350.70 behind only Australia’s Rhiannan Iffland (383.15). American Eleanor Smart was third with a cumulative score of 314.80.
“I am extremely content with today’s performance. I think I was so consistent across the board between all four dives,” said Carlson, a native of Thunder Bay, Ont. “I got between 8 and 8.5 on literally every single dive, and that just goes to show that I didn’t hit anything, but I didn’t miss anything, and I’m really proud of that.”
Macaulay improved on her fifth-place finish two weeks ago with a combined score of 291.55. The 29-year-old native of Great Yarmouth in the United Kingdom is representing Canada on the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series for a second straight season.
“Today’s performance was alright. They were sort of low scores, but in the end, I’m happy. I came fourth,” Macaulay said. “I wouldn’t say I took satisfaction in the improvement because I know I have what it takes to take the podium. In the end, I am happy with my performance, I had a lot of fun up there. My reverse was pretty good; my back I know I could do way better”
Harrison, making her first start of the season, entered the final round in 10th place and scored 62.70 on her last dive to finish with a cumulative score of 233.60.
