Athlete info

Kris Kolanus
Date of Birth:
Resides in:
Halle, Germany
Mad Hoppers

The 30-year-old is the first athlete in the history of the World Series to return as a permanent diver after being forced into wildcard status for the previous two seasons. Kris Kolanus is also the only diver in the line-up who runs his own record label – Mad-Hop Records.

The Pole again and again has proven he is capable of mixing it with the world's best cliff divers and, after starting a family with fellow cliff diver Anna Bader from Germany, has ambitious goals for the next few years: "This season I want to make it on the podium a few times and prepare myself to being able to win the whole Series in 2018."

A diving-coach as a father and an acrobat as a mother – Kris definitely comes from a promising background!
