Hey Everyone! My name is Emily Whitehead, and I’m a 23-year-old elite gymnast from Australia. I've proudly represented Australia since I was 12 years old, participating in prestigious events such as the Commonwealth Games in 2018 and 2022, as well as the Tokyo Olympics in 2021. Now, I've been selected to compete at the Paris Olympics 2024 - a dream come true.

I dedicate over 30 hours a week to training, striving to excel in gymnastics. After Tokyo, I moved away from home to fully focus on my athletic career while also balancing a job at Rebel Sports, where I worked up to 20 hours a week. Additionally, I'm currently studying Exercise Sports Science to deepen my understanding of sports and fitness.


Why I Need Your Support:

I am reaching out for financial assistance because being away from home for extended periods without a steady income has been challenging. While travel and accommodation costs for the Olympics are covered, I need support to ensure optimal preparation leading up to the Games. The next few months require intense training, making it necessary to reduce my work hours to prioritise recovery and readiness.


Your Contribution Will Support:

  • Training: Essential for maintaining peak performance.
  • Nutrition: Ensuring proper fuel for training and recovery.
  • Recovery: Vital for staying in top physical condition.
  • Training Equipment: Equipment and essential gear needed for Performance
  • Living Expenses: Covering basic needs during intensive training periods.
  • Accommodation: Ensuring a comfortable and focused environment.


Supporting My Family:

My family's unwavering support has been instrumental in my journey. They have made significant sacrifices to help me pursue my gymnastics career, including not being able to join me at international competitions. I would love to give back by bringing them to Paris to share in the Olympic experience and celebrate our collective hard work and dedication.


Donations of any amount, big or small would be truly appreciated. All donations are tax-deductible through this platform. Your support means the world to me as I strive to represent Australia at the Paris Olympics.


If you wish to reach out and support me in any way, you can find me on Instagram at @emily_whitehead_ or email me at emily.whitehead@olympian.org


Thank you for considering supporting my Olympic journey!
