A diver who competed in the London Olympics and two gymnasts set to star with the Cirque du Soleil are among the team performing in a new show at a Lowestoft theme park.

The trio are part of a six strong team of performers who have brought their high dive show to Pleasurewood Hills for the whole of the summer.

With an impressive range of diving, gymnastics and parkour experience between them, the international team are set to entertain audiences with their unique show.

Julian Sanchez was a member of the Mexican National Diving Team for 16 years and came seventh when he performed in the 2012 Olympics. He’s joined by fellow Mexican performers Edubiel Alpizar, a professional high diver and stunt man who is also a trained vet and scientist, and Alain Carreó, the show captain who is no stranger to live dive shows as he has been performing in them for over 20 years.

Completing the act are David Jesus Peá, a Spanish champion on both springboards and platforms, Renato Rodrigues Queiroz, a Brazilian and Danish champion on double mini trampoline and Gabriel Oliveira de Paula Costa who trained at the National Circus School in Brazil.

After performing at Pleasurewood Hills both Renato and Gabriel are set to take to the stage with the Cirque du Soleil when they will be travelling to China and Germany.

The experience of the team together with their timing and nerves of steel make for an impressive show which tells the story of a Mayan tribe and their search for a new leader.

As well as including platforms of different heights including one set at 25 meters, the show also includes a choreographed trampoline routine and one or two special stunts.

Adam Noble, general manager at Pleasurewood Hills, said: “The experience of the team is incredible and we are really pleased that they are performing at the park for the whole of the summer.

“We’re in our premier week and so far audiences have been really impressed with the show. We know that visitors to the park love our shows and hope that the new addition will prove to be just as popular.”
