About the project

After picking up a barbell for the first time in my late 30's and falling in love with weightlifting, I have now qualified to compete at the World Masters Weightlifting Championships in Barcelona in August 2018.


I currently hold state records in 2 weight categories in my age group and just broke the Australian Masters Snatch Record in the 40-44yo 53kg category.


I would love to represent Australia once again, and potentially bring home some hardware!! Pretty excited to be lifting with some inspiring lifters from all over the world.


Whilst my family (hubby and my four wonderful kids) support me wholeheartedly in all my lifting endeavours, I'm seeking help to ease the financials as they already sacrifice a lot of mum/wife time and my son is devastated that I'm leaving him behind when his favourite soccer team is Barca. ​


Whilst this is an international event, Masters competitors do not receive any funding from any government body and we are fully self funded.


I'm would like to raise enough for my flights, accommodation and some travel costs.


I'm truly grateful for this opportunity and would even be more appreciative if you would throw a few $$ my way to help. Every little bit helps.
