My name is Rantso Mokopane, I am 24 years old and currently live in Potchefstroom where I am also studying. I am a 5-time steeplechase champion with a personal best of 8min31 for the 3000m steeplechase, which is only 10sec off the world championship qualifying time!
I am the National Steeplechase Champion. I am currently in Europe so that I can compete and qualify for the World Champs in Doha, Qatar and fulfill my dream! Although I have been blessed to get here I still need to travel around Europe to go to the different competitions, which are in different countries around Europe.
In order for me to do this, I still need to raise R40,000. My first race will be next week in Copenhagen which I am very excited about!
The money will be used for:
A Visa to Europe
Travel costs such as flights to and from Europe
Accommodation in Europe and food
Transport while in Europe - trains, taxi's, buses and flights around Europe
Winning the SA title for the steeplechase has been such a dream come true and to go to a competition that is worldwide and to compete against the best will just complete it! These funds will help me to be exposed for what I need to be the best and I will have the opportunity to prove my ability and join the team in Doha!
*Funds raised will be transferred directly to my manager's FFA SportsMan account from where it will be managed*
