A high diving competition has been held in Kosovo after it was postponed for seven years due to lack of funding.
The competition dates back around 60 years and drew a crowd of hundreds on Sunday. People sat along the banks of the White Drin river to watch 27 divers compete for first prize.
Each competitor dived from the edge of the Fshajt bridge, 22 metres (72 feet) into the waters below.
The winner of the competition, Sali Riza Grancina, said "the feeling of flying is unexplainable" and the competition would continue into the future.
