THE BIRD

ANNA BADER, 33, MUTLANGEN, GERMANY

«For those three seconds when I'm free-falling, I'm in my own world.» When a single false move can cost your life. When time is slowing down and you are feeling a moment of truth. That is 100% of concentration. That is her world. The world of Anna Bader. Anna became one of the most courageous female high divers and 6-time European Champion in cliff diving. Gymnastics was her first passion, and that's what eventually led her to a springboard at age 13. Wanting to combine her love of gymnastics and water, she thought doing acrobats into a pool was the ideal sport for her. Soon enough, she started participating in competitive diving and continued on this path—making the German national team along the way—for the next seven years. In 2006 Anna participated for the first time at Red Bull Cliff Diving series in Switzerland and already in 2008 completed her highest dive from 24.5 metres in Polignano. Today Anna is a worldwide star and the face of cliff diving. But still she always prefers to listen to her own heart and to be in her own world.

«If I do things, I do because I feel it. I would never jump off the cliff, because somebody says «Go! Go! Jump!». No! I jump because I feel it, because I want. And sometimes actually I don’t feel it, and I go back. I think this is important always listen to your inner voice, and to not get lost in what people expect from you.»
