Spencer Woods Journey from Rural Alaska to Tokyo

Hello everyone! Thank you for checking out my page. My name is Spencer and I have been wrestling since I was 7 years old. My journey started in Shungnak, Alaska, a small, rural village about 50 miles above the Arctic Circle. Throughout my journey, I have won two Alaska State Championship titles for the Kotzebue Huskies, I have competed in the Division 1 B1G conference for the Maryland Terrapins, and have made an US OPEN National Championship Finals appearance for the Northern Michigan University-Olympic Training Site. Since I have been training full-time Greco Roman Wrestling at the NMU-OTS, I have traveled to multiple countries, met and trained with amazing athletes and coaches, and have recently qualified for the US Olympic Trials to go to the Tokyo Olympics! 
This campaign is to help fund my training for the US Olympic Trials, which will be held at Penn State College April 4-5, 2020. I will be competing and training in Haparanda, Sweden Nov 26-Dec 3, I will be competing in Ft. Worth, Texas Dec. 20, I will be training at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado during Jan. 5-12, and also more trips with details coming soon. These training camps and competitions is what have sky rocketed my performance in my past 2 years and it is what will propel me to Tokyo. Your funds will help pay for my flights, room and board, and other training expenses on these trips. 
I will post updates to keep everyone informed on how I am doing and how your funds are helping me reach my childhood dream. Thank you for your support and GO USA!
