Red Bull Cliff Diving

The Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, established in 2009 and created by Red Bull, is an annual international series of cliff diving events in which a limited number of competitors determine the Cliff Diving World Series winner. Competitions are held in a limited number of venues around the globe. At the beginning, it was addressed only to men. It is open to women since 2013. Lysanne Richard is selected regular diver for the series.

Who is Lysanne Richard

At the age of 10 Lysanne Richard saw, for the first time, a daring high dive during a performance at Village Vacances Valcartier, near Quebec City. "I immediately knew that I wanted to do that" she recalls. Born in Chicoutimi Québec Canada, she took up diving at the age of nine. She competed in provincial and national events. After high school, she studied at École nationale de cirque de Montreal. She then made career in this universe, working especially for Cirque du Soleil (Zarkana) and Les 7 doigts de la main (Amuse). Three children were born over time, and often accompanied her on tour, with their dad.
