Steven LoBue secured his second career win at the 2014 Cliff Diving World Series event in Portugal on Saturday.

The 29-year-old American pressed his claim for this year's World Series title with victory in the Azores. Colombia's Orlando Duque and third-placed David Colturi, of the USA, also produced their best performances of the year in front of 2,000 spectators on boats and ships.

During four rounds of competition, the 14 cliff divers dove more than 27 metres from three different locations on the Islet of Vila Franca do Campo, which included two rounds directly off the cliff face.

LoBue (468.15pts) beat Duque (458.00pts) to the top spot, with David Colturi (436.40pts) of the U.S. finishing in third place.
