For the third round of competition, the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series will head across the pond to Serpent's Lair in Ireland, where the water is expected to be a chilly 53 degrees. It will be the first of two colder-weather stops, as the series will then head to Norway before turning southwest to Portugal and Spain and finishing up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Oct. 19.
Hunt said he will need to be at the top of his game to have a shot at the title of "World's Best Diver" in four months.
"It's getting really tough," he said. "I'm hoping to stay on the podium. But if I can stay on the level of diving that I produced here, I'll be over the moon."
Simpson said she feels confident that if she continues to work hard and refine her dives, she will have as good a chance as anyone to be the inaugural women's champion of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series.
"I've had a really good training season," she said. "If I keep training like I've been, I think I'll just do even better next time around."
