Some people call cliff-diving a sport. Others say it’s sheer madness. Either way, jumping more than 20 metres off a rock ledge, trying to be graceful as you somersault into the water at 80 kilometres an hour, is spectacular. And incredibly dangerous. Just two months ago Australian Rhiannan Iffland took up cliff-diving and literally, from her first jump, stunned her more experienced competition by beating them. Tara Brown joined the 24-year-old daredevil with nerves of steel and her understandably nervous parents in Italy for her latest vertigo-inducing contest (2016).
