About the project

"My dream is to represent Australia at the Olympics in Sport Climbing"

My name is Leah Jeffries and I am a 15 year old rock climber who has been climbing since age 10. I have qualified to represent Australia at the World Youth Championships from 9th August and 16th August, 2018, in Moscow​. I am a dedicated athlete and I love inspiring others to take up this amazing sport.

I will be competing in all 3 disciplines, Lead (tackling a 15 meter high clipping a rope on the way up), boulder (6 meter high climbs with mats rather than ropes for protection) and speed (15 metre high wall on a standard route).

I am seeking support from the community to help fund my trip to Moscow. We will be leaving on the 30th July for a week training camp in Munich and then 10 days of competition in Moscow. There is no state or national funding for sport climbing athletes that represent Australia.

That is why I have set up a funding page through the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF). All donations are TAX DEDUCTIBLE this applies to cash and goods and service donations.

Thank you for you donation this will help me to get to Moscow and to realise my dreams of representing Australia at the Olympics.
