My name is Thomas Carty and I am a super heavyweight amateur boxer.
Anyone that knows me, will know just how invested I am in pursuing my boxing career.
I am currently studying full time in DCU, whilst juggling training as a full time elite athlete. I have no solid income as I have no time to hold down a solid part time job.
I am currently in camp training for the national senior elite championships where I will look to book my place at the Olympic qualifiers. It has always been a childhood dream of mine to become and Olympian and I believe I have a genuine chance at qualification for Tokyo 2020.
I am looking for help with the costs of training full time in the lead up to the Irish elite championships and beyond, between training equipment and most of all the cost of travel to and from training/competition it has become financially difficult to sustain.
I’d really appreciate any help I can get on the road to Olympic qualification.
