Help Sam Reiser to the World Juniors

Hey my name is Sam Reiser, 
I am 17 years old and I was recently accepted onto the Australian Athletics team to compete in America in the IAAF World Junior Championships in the 400m and the 4x400m relay. 

Being selected onto the team is a dream come true. On the 3rd of July I leave with the Australian team for Eugene, Oregon via Vancouver, Canada where we will race a couple of times and prepare ourselves for the World Championships. We will be away for a month with The World Junior Championships taking place between 22-27 July. 

I have only been training for a relatively short period of time starting in earnest at the end of the last season. I have been involved athletics for just over 18 months, having played soccer and futsal before. This is such an unbelievable opportunity after much hard work, hundreds of hours put in, weekends and evenings spent at at training and generally improving to get to this point. 

To get to where I am now, I have competed in many competitions, including interschools championships, Victorian All Schools, State Championships, Australian All Schools, The National Championships and National Tour Meets, many of these competitions have taken me all over the country. 

The World Junior Championship is an important stepping stone in making my Olympic dream come true. It will give me the experience and knowledge of competing on a world stage that will benefit me in future championships. 

In the lead up to World Juniors I will need new shoes including both spikes and runners, winter training gear, a weekly massage to keep injuries at bay and physio to assess any problems that do come up. We have already had to pay for flights, hotels and food around Australia to get me to the startline up against some of the countries best runners, such as Olympian and World Championship hurdler, Tristan Thomas and the world's elite including 2008 Olympic champion and 2013 World Champion LaShawn Merrit. 

The World Junior Trip is self funded and to compete I am going to need some help getting there! I would greatly appreciate donations of whatever size as every little bit helps! 

Also if you could share this page to friends and family that would be appreciated very much! 

Thanks so much for all the support so far!
