PICTURE OF THE DAY
Artem Silchenko made a big splash after winning the final round of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2013 in Krabi last weekend, clinching the title in dramatic fashion _ matched only by the stunning backdrop.
After five seasons of competing in the glamorous sport, which this year staged events in the US, France, Italy, the UK, Denmark, Brazil, Portugal and Thailand, the Russian diver finally wrestled the top spot from Brit Gary Hunt.
''I cannot believe it _ it is pure emotion and there is nothing really you can say.
''I'm starting to understand that I'm the best high-diver for 2013, and that has always been my dream,'' said Silchenko after his winning 27m dive.
