Hi guys,


I am starting this fundraiser to help raise funds for my partner Kyle Bruce. Kyle Bruce is Australia's #1 ranked Weightlifter, he has won a silver medal at the 2022 Commonwealth Games, holds all the 81 / 89kg National Records & is on track to qualify for the 2024 Olympic Games based on the qualification system.


The problem is currently is that he is receiving NO funding from his state, national federations or sponsors . For those that know Kyle personally, he does not want to accept donations & would prefer to work more to fund his own Olympic campaign.. but thats not going to work.


He needs to do over 5 international competitions that are very far away from Australia, the first one is in North America in June. This trip will probably cost around 5 k on its own, and then if he wants a coach to come he also has to self fund it. We would like these donations to help him pay for the flights, accommodation, entry fees etc so he doesnt have to stress about money & he can focus on the thing that will get him there - his training. Currently Kyle has to work full time & is basically using his own wage to fund his training due to no support.


Kyle is an ambassador for the sport & has gotten so many young Australian boys / girls into training & spends his weekends coaching & promoting the sport. We just dont have the money right now to justify covering this on our own - and we know Kyle will be kicking himself in a few years if he says to someone he couldn't attempt to qualify for the Olympics because of money!


Any donation, even $5 will be greatly appreciated. We know we are going to have to self fund most of the qualification process, but we'd just love some help so Kyle doesnt have to train & think of the financial burden everyday!


*UPDATE - 15/3/23 - WOW !! Thanks for all the support guys, we have reached the initial target of $5k. The overall qualification period for the Olympics will cost around $25 - 30,000 AUD. One of Kyle's 5 qualification trips will be fully funded, so there will be 4 that will cost around 5 k each to get too. Kyle's Cuba Trip is also not coached, so we are looking to raise some funds to hopefully get me or Ali there. Thanks everyone for your generosity - Isabel
