Hi, my name is Blake Doyle and I am a 17-year-old athlete living in rural Tasmania. My main event is the long jump and I would love it if you could support me on my journey to achieving my dream of becoming an Olympian! 

I am ranked 6th all time Tasmanian in the long jump and in December 2023 at the National All Schools Championships in Perth Western Australia, I won gold in the under-17 long jump with a personal best jump of 7.34m. This is an Australian Open national qualifying standard.

My goal now is to achieve the under-20 World Athletics qualifier for the long jump which is 7.56m. I will need to continue to compete in competitive fields to further my chances of qualifying and work towards the world junior qualifying standard. This will not only require a lot of training but also travel to competitions within Australia. 

The costs associated with high-level sports are very extensive, the expenses for traveling interstate for competitions, registration fees for events, club memberships, uniforms, private health insurance, training fees for my coach and gym memberships are all paid for by my mum and dad as I am a student. I have just applied for my first-ever passport which is another big expense, but I am hoping I get to use it as I progress and edge closer to my dream of becoming an Olympian.

I have achieved national qualifying standards in high jump (U23), long jump (Open), triple jump (U20) and the 110-meter hurdles (U18). I hold the Tasmanian record for the sprint hurdles in the U16/U17 and U18 age groups and the U15 Little Athletics State record in triple jump. I have won one national gold medal, two silver and three bronze.

Your donation will help me attend the Australian Athletics Championships which is being held in Adelaide from the 11th to the 19th of April 2024. 

I’d like to take the opportunity to thank my family who always support me and my coach Josh Mason who has helped get me this far. Also, to the local businesses who have supported me so far on my athletics journey. Thank you for reading my page and thank you in advance as any support is appreciated.
