Eleanor (Ellie) Smart

Date of birth: 21/10/1995

From: United States of America 🇺🇸


Ellie’s cliff diving career began by pure chance in the fall of 2016 when her best friend convinced her to go cliff jumping. She instantly fell in love and realized that all of her past training had been preparing her for this next challenge, and she quickly set her sights on becoming a high diver. In the spring of 2017, Ellie went to Plymouth, England, to learn a high diving list. Shortly after was invited to compete in her first Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series event where she took fifth place. Ellie made two more appearances in the Red Bull World Series this season as a wildcard, and she also took first place in the WHDF Agios Nikolaos Cliff Diving Competition. In addition to her diving career, Ellie founded The Clean Cliffs Project to bring awareness to the global issue of plastic pollution.
