Death plunge diving – only in Oslo…

August 9, 2017 • 1 min read

This crazy sport is definitely not for everyone… On August 19th, you can watch the World Championship in Death Plunge Diving. Yep, it’s a thing.

Some might not call it a sport, however Norwegian’s do… Death plunge diving is when participants jump off a diving board that’s 10 meters high and try to hold a dangerous pose for as long as they manage, before they hit the water when they (hopefully) have time to straighten up for a smooth landing. If you want to participate, you are free to do so. The World Championship in Death Plunge Diving takes place at Frognerbadet (Middelthuns gate 28) in the city district Frogner. The competition starts at 17.00 / 5PM.
