I am Patricia Harding, and I am 19 years old. I live in the Eastern Cape a small city called Port Elizabeth in South Africa.
I am in Westering High School in Grade 12. I love sport and I have been playing netball for the 1st team since Grade 8. I love doing Powerlifting as everyone thinks that girls have to be big built to do Powerlifting as it is a man sport. I have been competing in the U/47kg division for the last 4 years and have broken numerous records and set up new ones. I love the sport and hope to get to go and compete overseas one day.
I have been selected to represent South Africa at the African Powerlifting Championship in October. I will be competing against some of the worlds finest Powerlifters coming from all over the world. My inspiration for this campaign is to get enough funds to compete at an international level and gain experience with the rest of the world. My biggest dream is to compete at the Worlds next year in Czech Republic, Belarus, USA(Birmingham) and Norway. This will be an amazing opportunity.
All funds need to be raised by the 25th of September 2019.
- Entry fee: R2670
- Coach: R2000
- SA Kit: R3730
- Transport: R10 000
- Accommodation: R1600
- Food: R2000
I will be able to represent my country at an international competition which is a great way to gain experience in the sport and to grow as a lifter and coaching Powerlifting to young girls. I would be honoured and pride to wear the South African colours.
