Sharissa Gannaway's TKD Journey

Sharissa is a talented teenager who dreams of becoming an Olympic and World Champion in Taekwondo. She has devoted alot of time to training in order to be the best she can be. She currently trains 10hrs a week with an additional 8hrs every 2 weeks at the GB Olympic Academy in Manchester as part of the Junior Development Team.

Sharissa fights in -68kg Weight category and has been competing for the last 2yrs. After only a few months into the sport, some private training she excelled at such a rate and won Gold at the 2015 National Championships. From there she was scouted to try out for the GB Olympic Academy development program. She has an array of GOLD and SILVER medals from a number of regional and European competitions.

Due to an operation Sharissa was unable to compete to retain her title in 2016 and in 2017 sustained an injury which needed time to heal meaning she had to take a back seat again at Nationals. Sharissa has been selected to represent Great Britain at the upcoming European Championships in Cyprus this November, of which she's excited about.

All of this is self funded and we would really appreciate any help with raising funds to cover some of the costs associated with representing Great Britain at this competition.

Travel, Entry Fee and Accomodation for European Championships - £1200 per athlete.
She also has 2 G1 tournaments in the next few months

Croatia - £675
Las Vegas - £1200
Any donation, no matter how small would be extremely gratefully received. This is truly an amazing opportunity for Sharissa and we would like to thank you in advance for your kind and generous support.xx
