My name is Eve Dowley and I am a 18 year old Slopestyle and Big Air Snowboarder from Otford NSW. I have been training and competing in Slopesytle and Big Air for the past 3 years, securing results to rank me 2nd in Australia for Women's Slopestyle.
2017/2018 competition results:
I have just completed my HSC, so my sights are totally fixed on my ultimate goal, to qualify and represent Australia in the 2022 Winter Olympics. In order to make this happen my goal is to qualify for finals in World Cup competitions in 2019/2020 and podium in 2021. In doing this my goal is to also establish myself and an influencing female ambassador in snowboarding to inspire other young women to reach big, work hard and pursue their dreams.
To make this dream a reality takes not only extreme amounts of hard work both on and off the snow, building fitness and strength to ensure progression and help me avoid injuries but also substantial amounts of money. Due to the nature of my sport (snowsport) I need to travel independently and live overseas for much of the year. I currently work when I am home (Tops Conference Centre) and receive help from family and friends as well as gear sponsorship from my gear sponsors; Salomon Snowboards, Nikita Clothing, Yama Gloves, Modest Goggles and Standard Sock Co.
Success does not happen without hard work ethic, a strong will and determination and the willingness to sacrifice a ‘normal’ teenage life but also the reality is success requires support in the form of financial backing. I have put this project together to assist in the training and travel costs for 2019/2020. Costs include - coach fees, airfares, accommodation, food, training facilities, physiotherapy and medical costs.
I am eternally grateful to any and all donations.
