Congratulations to Matthew Mitcham on being award GQ magazine "Social Force of the Year".
He ruled the pool in Beijing 2008, a near perfect dive securing gold in the 10m platform. Four years on, this winner is making a splash with social media, mentoring tens of thousands via twitter.
Count all the professional divers you know and you’ll run out of names before you do fingers — maybe even thumbs. But one person who’ll definitely come to mind is Matthew Mitcham, the 24-year-old who first shot to worldwide acclaim at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Not only did he beat the Chinese at their own game, in China, but he did so with the best single dive score in the sport’s history.

14 divers, from 10 different countries, have been given a plane ticket to Australia and the chance to compete in the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series after the initial line-up was confirmed for the 2013 Qualification Competition.
Over the past month, divers have been applying via redbullcliffdiving.com and, after sifting through YouTube clips and considering past performances, eight athletes have been selected by organisers in addition to the six divers who competed as part of the 2012 World Series but did not make the automatic cut for 2013.
The divers will go up to a height of 27 metres and as they fall attempt to match technique and physical artistry in the quest for diving perfection and top scores from the judges. The 14 athletes are competing for five available places in the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2013.
Stay tuned to redbullcliffdiving.com for more in the build-up to the 2013 Qualification Competition which will take place on the Hawkesbury River, in Australia, on January 31 and February 2.
