Lifting At World Uni's
Project 2013-04-23 01:52:03 +1200
My name is Douglas Sekone-Fraser I am a fourth year Phedder (Physical Education student) at the University of Otago. I love weightlifting and as many of you may know I qualified and was selected to compete in this year World Uni Games in Kazan. I will be the sole weightlifter from NZ travelling to Kazan from 6th-17th July to compete in the World Uni Games, and will be the first of many Kiwis who will compete in the biennial event.
I am honored to be given the chance to represent my country and university as I attempt to defy gravity and lift a monstrous amount of weight over my head. Such a high level of competition will ultimately assist me in my goal to compete in the Commonwealth Games next year.
Competing in Kazan is a dream that seems distant for a scafie at around $5600 for the basics to compete. I have set up this PledgeMe page so you, my generous friends, family and people of PledgeMe can help me achieve this dream. I'm not asking for the whole $5600, just $1500 to go towards the trip. All support is greatly appreciated.
I will be adding more rewards as soon as I can, and photos and videos of training. Thanks for your support.
