Melissa has been selected for the 2023 Australian World Archery Para and VI Championship Team to compete in July at the World Championships in Pilsen, Czech Republic. Melissa is seeking support to ensure she can represent Australia at the World Championship, moving one step closer to her goal. Despite losing her second leg in May 2020, she has continued to thrive. Her experiences have shaped her into the unwavering athlete, compassionate friend and caring mother that she is today.


Melissa has held a lifelong dream of representing Australia at an Olympic level since she was a young athlete. In 2014, she represented Australia in the canoe/kayak World Vaa Sprint Championship in Rio, Brazil. Unfortunately, after achieving an incredible 6 Gold Medals, she suffered a serious shoulder injury which ruled her out of the 2015 Worlds and 2016 Olympics. But her dream held true, believing that “Anything Is Possible” in 2021 she took up archery following an inspirational viewing of the para-archers shoot during the Tokyo Olympics. 


Fast forward two years, she has risen to one of the top para-archers in Australia and won’t stop until she achieves her dream. But she needs help to get to the Czech Republic and is seeking donations to facilitate travel, equipment, and unexpected costs during her journey.
