Diving Plongeon Canada – Budapest, July 21, 2017 – Canada’s Lysanne Richard, a 2016 World Cup Champion and FINA Female High Diver of the year, announced her withdrawal from the FINA World Championships on Friday. The 35-year-old athlete was expected to compete at this world-class event July 28-30, in Budapest, Hungary.
 
“I am extremely disappointed to miss world championships. I was looking forward to representing Canada, but an injury is currently preventing me from competing,” she said.
 
Injured since mid-June, Richard had to miss the first two legs of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in Inis Mor, Ireland, and Sao Miguel, Azores. She will not be able to attend the Italian stop of the circuit, which will be held July 22-23 in Polignagno a Mare.
 
Richard was very successful on this circuit last year, triumphing in Polignagno a Mare (Italy) and Mostar (Bosnia). Her second position in the Red Bull 2016 overall ranking guarantees Richard’s qualification for 2018.
 
“I’m surrounded by a team of specialists who are doing their very best to make sure I recover quickly. I feel better and better each day and I’m hoping to be ready in time for the last two legs of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series,” she added.
 
Lysanne competed at her first World Championships in 2015, in Kazan (RUS), where she finished 5th.
