ALEX CORTES

Sports Medicine is proud to be providing our services to Alex, who is a fourth generation circus performer. He was only six months old when his family came to the USA. Alex was bitten by the flying trapeze bug early in life and began flying at the extremely young age of five. By age seven, he was regularly performing, when he would hang by his knees and swing across to his father. At age eight, he began doing a layout across and about a year later, started throwing double somersaults. Eventually he would begin throwing triples and take over the position of main flyer for THE FLYING CORTES.

Alex is performing this weekend at the Royal Canadian Family Circus at the Sheridan Centre in Mississauga.
