Matilda Kokera Olympic dream Campaign

Good day,

I am Matilda Kokera, a 19-year-old amateur wrestler from Lotus River's Phumlani village, aspiring to become the first South African female to represent our nation at the Olympic Games. Over the past 7 years, I've poured immense effort and dedication into my craft, achieving significant milestones as a 9-time South African Champion and 9-time Western Province champ.

Having proudly represented South Africa at international events, including the African Championships in Johannesburg and Casablanca, I am currently the top female wrestler in my weight category within the country. I have the honor of being selected to represent South Africa at the African Continental Championships and the African and Oceania Olympic Games Qualifier event in Egypt from March 14-19 and March 22-24, 2024, respectively.

To make this dream a reality, I require support with an estimated cost of R57,000, covering airfare, accommodation, local transport, team clothing, competition license, and insurance. This financial barrier is one that many athletes face, and your generosity as sponsors can make a significant impact.

Behind every triumph lies countless hours of effort and dedication. Wrestling demands not only physical strength but also mental resilience and unwavering commitment. Your support will not only fuel my journey but will also recognize the sacrifices and passion invested in this pursuit.

Your support, no matter the amount, will be sincerely appreciated. Thank you for considering backing a young female athlete who understands the true essence of effort and dedication in her pursuit of competing at this prestigious event.

Best regards,
Matilda Kokera
