After eight thrilling events around the globe, the 2016 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series comes down to this: a grand finale and the first ever night competition in Dubai. The world's best male and female cliff divers will leap from up to 27m into the floodlit setting at Pier 7 in the magnificent Dubai Marina, Gary Hunt and Rhiannan Iffland have already sealed their title victories, but can they both celebrate in style with one final win? Stay tuned right here for all the action and updates.
The crowd is building up nicely down at Pier 7 and around the Dubai Marina.
We're just minutes away from the men's third round now
Crowd numbers are in and we have a huge 12,000 packed into this awesome Dubai Marina setting.
Here we go then, Alain Kohl will kick off the final night of diving this season.
History-maker, Owen Weymouth of England, is the youngest ever World Series diver. What a moment for him here.
"I am loving diving in Dubai," says Andy Jones, and no wonder after a spectacular dive keeps him in the lead going into the final.
Switching over to the 20.5m platform now for the final of the women's competition. Rhiannan Iffland leads after two rounds and will be aiming to celebrate her title win in style with another victory under the lights here.
Not bad from Ginger Huber, who moves into the lead for now. Her fellow American Rachelle Simpson doesn't make a great entry and picks up only fives from the judges.
A fantastic season for Lysanne Richard comes to an end here in the Dubai Marina. Not a sensational final dive from the Canadian, but she'll celebrate finishing second overall in 2016.
Very nice from Adriana Jimenez, and she fires into the lead. Here comes Jaki Valente now with the hardest women's dive in the world. Up onto her hands and away she goes...
Wow, what an effort from the Brazilian. Not the best scores but ten out of ten for bravery.
Cesilie Carlton and Helena Merten put in a pair of nice dives, and it's Merten who's up into the lead. Now, it's over to Rhiannan Iffland for the final dive of the women's season. Can she do it?
Did we ever doubt her? Another immaculate dive from the Australian wildcard and she tops off her stunning season with another victory to add to the title she secured last night. What a revelation she's been this season.
Congratulations also to Helena Merten who ends the season with a second-place finish. A great final dive from Adriana Jimenez fires her to a first podium finish of the season in third.
Artem Silchenko will kick off the final men's round of 2016 now.
A brave blind entry in the dark for the Russian, but that's a heavy landing and the judges pull out some low scores.
Sergio Guzman, on the back of his recent victory in Japan, is targeting another podium finish after a beautiful final dive.
Steven LoBue picks up some 8.5s, then Jonathan Paredes goes one better and teases some 9s out of the judges.
Michal Navratil has had an amazing season, picking up two wins, but his final dive in Dubai isn't up there with his best. Still, the 'Man of Steel' will be delighted with his achievements this year following a mid-season knee surgery.
A shock here for Orlando Duque. The legend gets a little lost in the dark and enters the water with his arms up. The judges can go no higher than 4 for that one.
Now, can Gary Hunt cement his title win with another victory?
Not a great entry for the Brit, and the door is now open for Andy Jones to grab his first ever victory. Can the American do it under the lights here?
Brilliant from Jones, let's see the scores...
ANDY JONES WINS IN DUBAI!
What a final dive from Jones there. Under the lights, under pressure, and he absolutely nails it. This has been coming all season, after three podium finishes, and what a time to do it. He celebrates wildly in the water with his fellow divers. Sensational scenes here in Dubai Marina.
That win also propels Jones ahead of Navratil in the fight for third place overall.
