Rhiannan Iffland (AUS) – High Diving Aussie rookie of success

This is a rare example of (very) quick success.

Invited with a wild-card to take part in the 2016 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, Rhiannan Iffland was the first rookie ever to win this annual circuit! In April this year, at the FINA High Diving World Cup in Abu Dhabi (UAE), the 25-year-old Australian was already silver medallist, behind Mexico’s Adriana Jimenez.

“I fought for gold like a real Amazon”, says Kolesnichenko (RUS)

From her early youth Svetlana Kolesnichenko showed talent. She was 13 when she was invited to join the junior national team, a great achievement for the girl, who was born and started training in the small town of Gatchina in the suburbs of Saint-Petersburg.

At 16 she received a life-changing phone call: “Sveta, you are going to work in Team Russia led by Tatiana Pokrovskaya.”

At the age of 23 Svetlana is an Olympic champion, a multiple world and European champion in team routine and a new solo star of synchronised swimming.

Caeleb Dressel (USA) “I don’t want to be compared to Michael”

Five years ago Caeleb Dressel was the youngest male entered in the 2012 US Olympic Trials at age 15. He recalled the bursts of fire on both sides of the pool and the red-white-and blue coloured waterfall used as the backdrop for each new Olympian selected for the US Olympic team.

Less memorable were his own performances, a tie for 145th, out of 167 finishers, in the 50m freestyle and tied for 152nd in the 100m freestyle. Dressel chose to sit by himself in the stands, away from his parents Christina and Michael and even from swim coach Sergio Lopez of the Bolles School.
