South African Lifesaver Competing Internationally

South African Lifesaver Competing Internationally

Personal message

My name is Bianca Opperman. I am a 17 year old South African swimmer and lifesaver from North West, Potchefstroom. I currently hold South African records for lifesaving in two events at Junior and Senior levels.  I compete both nationally and internationally.  My most recent competition was in Spain where I received a bronze, silver and gold medal for individual events in the youth age group. I am passionate about helping others; that I can do that with my talents is a bonus.

I have been selected to represent South Africa at the RLSS Commonwealth Festival of Lifesaving taking place in Leeds, United Kingdom, from 21-23 November 2019. This is a self-funded tour.

The funding will be used as follows: R22 000 for flight tickets and other transport, R13 500 for accommodation and meals over a period of 9 days, R2 500 kit for travel and R 2000 for the UK Visa.

Any small donation will allow me to move one step closer to my dreams and goals (World Championships 2020). I will be able to showcase my talents and improve my skills to make my country and loved ones proud. It will also contribute in helping so I can continue on my journey to help prevent drowning and keep people safe. To compete as lifeguards we have to be qualified and do community hours thus allowing me to pursue my passion for helping others.
