«Regarde l’eau à perte de vue. Les montagnes pis les falaises qui surplombent l’horizon. La lumière d’une autre journée qui s’pose sur l’eau du Fjord, au même moment où les villages se réveillent…»

It is here at home that thanks to a team of people of heart, my dream has taken shape. For years, I imagined myself flying off its rock face and diving into the deep waters of my Fjord. It was audacious to do this test in the cold of the late September mornings of the Saguenay, but oh how it was worth the momentum to dare. Thank you Pierre Lavoie, Germain Thibault, Nathalie Almeras, Olivier Morneau-Ricard, Sarah Mayer, Mitch Geller and Diving Plongeon Canada, I could not have found better allies to propel this idea. Well done, Michael Foisy for taking your courage and flight with me. Thank you, Stéphane Lapointe and Félix Morin for coaching. Congratulations to Charles-Antoine Thériault for making this clip and for writing the beautiful text read by Vincent Vallières. Vincent I am grateful, we needed a voice to live up to the beauty of our landscapes and the warmth of the welcome of the people of our area. Congratulations to the entire technical team Marc-Olivier Goulet-Lanthier, Raphael Desharnais, Marc-Alexandre Dulude, Nicolas Robert and Loic Romer the visual you created is so great that the nature of the area.

Thank you to all the other craftsmen involved in this project. Thank you Promotion Saguenay, Port Saguenay, Saguenay Lac-St_Jean, M.R.C. du Fjord-du-Saguenay and Caisses Desjardins du Saguenay. This is just the beginning... Diving Canada and Pierre Lavoie are working on a big project for the summer of 2021, I can't wait to share the details with you.

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.

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)
