Death diving has become a way to show off your bravery from the 10m diving board. If the Finns have their saunas and the Scots have their caber tossing then the Norwegian contribution to culture is Death diving, laughs Pål Rigault, press secretary during the World Championships.

Death diving consists of throwing yourself off the 10m board with your body in the shape of a horizontal X and then holding that pose as long as you dare, before bending in your limbs just before hitting the water.
