Para-Triathlete going to World Champs

Para-Triathlete going to World Champs

Personal message

I'm a para-triathlete from Bloemfontein and have been selected to compete for South Africa at the world championships in Switzerland from 29 August - 1 September 2019.

Although I have cerebral palsy, I'll be competing with able-bodied people as I have qualified for the Triathlon South Africa Age Group Sprint team. I want to prove to myself and any other para-athletes anything is possible.

I have been training since 2013 for this moment. Opportunities like this don't come every day!

I need to raise my own funds for the following:
Flights (estimated): R10 000
Accommodation for 6 - 7 days: R12 000 - R5 000
Entree fee and SA clothes: R2 000
Visa: R1 000
Food per day (R300) - 10 to 20 Euros a day
Taxi and train: R2 000
