Ben Wright and Nang Van Nguyen are top ranked Para-Powerlifters known as the Dung Beetles, named this way for their ability to push heavy s**t. They are currently in preparation to represent Australia at the Para-Powerlifting World Championships in Mexico City, however they are under supported and resultantly are struggling to find the funds to get there.
Para-Powerlifting in Australia has recently had it's funding revoked and athletes who have been training for years like Ben and Nang support their training, nutrition and represent Australia entirely out of their own pocket. Speaking to the men themselves they are expecting this competition to cost them roughly $5,500 each, so we want to try to lighten the load on their pockets by supplying (at-least) half of what they need to bring them one step closer to their dreams and have Australia properly represented.
Both men work full-time and have supported their sport in every way they can and have lent a hand in numerous activities to help others support their athletic goals without hesitation. It's time they saw the love come back their way by helping support these lifters on their way to worlds.
