SOUTHAMPTON’S Gary Hunt aims to extend his lead in the 2014 Red Bull World Cliff Diving series this weekend.

He is one of 14 divers who will be competing in the circular-shaped islet of Vila Franca do Campo on the Azorean island of São Miguel in the middle of the Atlantic.

The two previous competitions on Portuguese soil have seen Artem Silchenko and Hunt take victory.

Hunt is out to recapture the title this year after winning it three years running from 2010-2012 inclusive.
