Team Canada: Jordan Bruce

Hello, I am an athlete selected to represent Canada at the 2013 Pan-American track and field championships in Medellin, Columbia this August. My main event is the triple jump, which I will be attending the meet for.
The trip to columbia is partially self-funded, and while attending Dalhousie University as a full time student, money for sport is pretty tight. I am an employee of Empire Theatres and am working hard to save the money, but with the deadline for payment quickly approaching I will need some help.

This will be my first national team opportunity and hopefully not the last. I am currently ranked 1st in Canada for triple jump and finished the 2[phone redacted] indoor season also tied for first place. I currently hold Nova Scotias junior indoor and outdoor provincial record and am hoping and expecting to smash both of those records in the near future.

I competed within the CIS this past winter as a rookie and placed 5th in the triple jump and competed in the 60m hurdles. That same year I competed in the AUS where I won bronze in long jump, silver in the triple jump, and gold in the 60m hurdles, also breaking the Dalhousie record with a time of 8.55 seconds. I was named AUS rookie of the year, nominated for CIS rookie of the year, and won Dalhousie all-around male rookie of the year.

In August later this summer I will compete at the 2013 Canada Games which are being held in Sherbrooke, Quebec. I am hoping to medal in / win the triple jump. This meet will prepare me well for the intense competition I will face in columbia.

ANY donations will help me so much in pursuing my goal and dream of competing for team Canada. I have already overcome the challenge of making team Canada, and the only thing standing in my way is the financial barrier! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks so much to all of you for the support!
