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.
Currently the highest platform in Olympic diving is 10 meters. In women's high diving, the height of the platform or the rocks for the departure lies 20 to 22 metres above the water. Among men, it is 27 to 29 metres. High diving is likely to be presented at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, in 2020.
Many major international competitions are held each year. To properly prepare, the young woman commits full time to her training and is now seeking sponsors.
"High dive events have great visibility." Highly spectacular, the Red Bull Cliff Diving events are presented in major TV channels including Red Bull TV. The FINA World Championships are covered by media around the world.

Achievements and awards 2016
FINA High Diving World Cup champion and 2nd in the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series
FINA Best Female High Diver of the Year 2016. FINA World Aquatics Gala was held December 4th.
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.
High diving? Lysanne Richard took her first taste of it in summer 2000, while she gave performances in northern France. (Translation of an article written by Marie Allard, La Presse)
