Help Nolene lift at African Champs Campaign
I'm Nolené Schlemmer (17 years old), a Youth Weightlifter from South Africa. I'm currently based in Modimolle, training at Henning Fitness. I've been chosen to represent South Africa at the African Youth and Junior Weightlifting Championships in Egypt from 24/10/2023 - 01/11/2023.
It would be a dream come true to represent SA on an international platform for a second year in a row. Unfortunately I will only be able to go if I get enough funding like donations and sponsors because most of the trip is self funded. Funding wil be used to cover flight and accomodation costs.
I represented South Africa last year at the African Youth and Junior Weightlifting Championships in Morocco and came home as the African Youth Women Champion in my weight category. I'm also the South African Youth and Junior Champion in my weight category and overall best female youth and junior lifter in South Africa as well as current Limpopo Provincial Youth record holder. I have a personal best of 71kg in the Snatch and 87kg in the Clean and Jerk with a total of 158kg.
It wil mean alot to me to be able to go and defend my title for a second year on the African Youth and Junior Weightlifting Stage.
I would appreciate every little contribution as it wil help me Compete and inspire other young athletes. Especially young female athletes who feel it is not possible to compete in strength and male dominated sports.
Please help me make my dream come true!
