AGE GROUP DRAFT LEGAL TRIATHLON WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
By history, I was introduced to triathlon at age 8. By age 12, I gave up
all other organized sports to dedicate myself to triathlon. During my
last 2 years as a youth competitor, I made the podium every time. In
2017, I joined an elite racing team and began racing in draft legal
triathlons. My parents took me all over the country for these races,
including Virginia, Wisconsin, Iowa and Ohio. I currently race with the Z3 Triathlon Team and we are training hard for our season, ahead. I
also participate in numerous Sprint Triathlon races around Florida. I
am currently ranked 1st in Florida and 16th in the Nation per USAT.
Last year I was awarded All-American status.
As a member of the cycling club, CSP Express Cycling, I have had the
opportunity to participate in numerous charity events, including the
MS 150, where in 2015, I was the youngest to ride the entire event and raised over $1000.00. I also participate in Parkland Buddy Sports for
running and soccer, where I am paired with a disabled child and assist in their sports growth. I attend Coral Glades High School where I am a
good student, taking advanced placement and honors classes. I have
also been a member of the Varsity Cross Country team for the last 2
years. I currently swim at the Coral Springs Aquatic Complex and am a member of the Senior 1 Club Team. I have wonderful coaches who are
training me for every step of my journey. If you can believe, with
school, I train about 15-20 hours per week, year round!
I also train with two local groups, The Race Junkies and the Pit Bulls,
who keep me fast and on track for all my disciplines. I have the help of Corratec USA and get to ride the most amazing bicycles on the planet.
NOW HERE’S WERE YOU ALL COME IN. I have dreamed of
competing in international races and I qualified, this year, for the first
time. I was involved in a very bad bicycle crash, this past summer, and I was delayed in my training with healing and therapy. I missed some
very key races, which devastated me. I wasn’t sure this would ever
happen. But, I worked very hard to get back into race shape and I am so excited that my dreams are becoming reality, but I cannot do it alone. I NEED YOUR HELP. My parents have taken me all over this country to
race, but going overseas is much more costly. Between the air fare, the hotels and the bike transport, my head spins.
Please, if you can, donate any amount reasonable, since I really want to have the opportunity to represent my country, the USA, the State of
Florida and The City of Coral Springs, in Switzerland, this summer!
