June 4th, 2023 – In the cold, rain and difficult weather conditions, Molly Carlson took second place on the podium at the first stop of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in Boston on Saturday. Even better, she was able to celebrate with friends and family who had made the trip to attend the event. 

Carlson, who was crowned champion of the Boston leg last season, finished the day with a total of 346.20 points. She was beaten by Australia’s Rhiannan Iffland (368.35). It promises to be an exciting season, as on May 27, Carlson defeated Rhiannan to be crowned champion at the World Aquatics High Diving World Cup in Fort Lauderdale. 

“I’m really, really happy with yesterday! Red Bull events come with so many more challenges to overcome than any pool competition. There are different heights, outdoor conditions, the tide coming in and out. It was a lot to deal with, especially with three new dives,” commented the Canadian.

“I did really well on my three new dives. Ironically, the one I did a little less well, but still with 7.5s, was my front core half pike. I’m really happy in general,” she added. 

The 24-year-old diver was also very proud of her Canadian teammates. Jessica Macaulay, who trains at the CAMO diving club with Carlson, took fourth place with 299.80 points. Aimee Harrison (Boardworks Diving) placed ninth with a score of 256.50. 

“It was amazing to dive with Aimee and Jess and see so many Canadian fans in the crowd. It was magical. I’m already looking forward to the next event in Paris in a few weeks’ time,” said Molly Carlson. 

On the men’s side, Britain’s Aidan Heslop (429.20) took third place. He represents Great Britain, but trains in Montreal under the wing of Stéphane Lapointe, like many other divers on the circuit. 

After a week’s training at home, the divers will head for Paris for the second stop of the season on June 18. About Diving Plongeon Canada
