Union duo tests their skills with Cirque du Soleil

Athletes always love to test themselves and learn new skills and Philadelphia Union defenders Fabinho and Aurelien Collin did just that as they visited a training session with performers from Cirque du Soleil's Amaluna production.

The Union duo tested themselves and flew in the air with assistance and tips from Mei Bouchard and Lais Camila before breaking out their own sport and showing some tricks of their own. The afternoon ended with lessons from Evgeny Kurkin on the Chinese Pole, another test of upper body strength.

Tickets are still available for Cirque du Soleil's Amaluna performances Under the Big Top at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center now through Sunday, August 25. Tickets can be purchased here.
