--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series returns to the UK in September to the picturesque location of the Blue Lagoon in Abereiddy in Pembrokeshire, south west Wales. The competition takes place near St David's, which is among the smallest cities in Europe with a population of only 1,800 and is built around the ancient cathedral of St David's.

With three English divers, the United Kingdom is the most-represented nation within the World Series in 2013 and Leeds' Matt Cowen, who was awarded a last-minute wildcard entry for this stop last season, before making it into the permanent divers' list via qualification, will try, together with three-time World Series champion Gary Hunt and former Olympic diver Blake Aldridge, to claim a podium in front of a home crowd at the sixth stop on the 2013 calendar of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series.

Wales is steeped in history and also has its own language, which is spoken by almost a quarter of the population. Pembrokeshire is a spectacular maritime county measuring only 20 miles from north to south, yet has 186 miles of breathtaking coastline. It has a diverse landscape of unspoilt pocket beaches, lakes, woodland and quaint villages, which have been the backdrop to films including the blockbuster, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
