About the project


My name is Emily Whitehead, I am an elite gymnast whose secured a spot to Tokyo. I have been on the Australian National squad since 2013. I have achieved many things over the years but my two biggest achievements are competing at the Commonwealth Games in 2018 and walking away with 2 Bronze medals and representing Australia at the World Championships. 

Im hoping for some support to help assist with the expenses of all things that involve preparing for an Olympic Games. 

Due to living in Victoria and COVID hitting, I have unfortunately been out of work since March 2020. Finding a job that fits around training and travel has been super difficult making it near impossible to prepare like an ‘Elite Athlete’ as I can barely cover basic living cost. 

Any donation over $2 is tax deductible and would be of huge assistance on my journey to the 2020 Olympic and would be greatly appreciated.
