Stage 2 is where YOU come in! Stage 2 of the Olympic Games qualifying process starts NOW. It’s comprised of 2 events: an evaluation during the Team USA Training Camp and International Competition performances that take place in January 2020. Only 1 athlete per weight class will get to represent the USA at the Olympics and on January 31st, Team USA will officially announce the athletes. Amelia intends to be that athlete, but needs your help in the process.
The athletes that are invited to the training camp on Jan 2nd, will be observed during training and evaluated based on attendance, timeliness and (most importantly) performance throughout practices. On January 17th, the team will use momentum from the training camp to depart for Sofia, Bulgaria and compete in the 71st Strandja Tournament.
Despite having secured a silver medal at Trials and a national champion, 4x natl. team member and Worlds Team member, USA Boxing does not provide much financial support. USA Boxing and the US Olympic & Paralympic Committee are non-profit organizations and do not accept any federal tax dollars. That means athletes like Amelia have to figure out how to pay for additional travel & training expenses and are supported by people like YOU.
Amelia works 2 jobs to keep the Olympic dream alive, but in this last big push for qualifying, she’ll have to take off over 4 weeks from work. Your money will be used to directly support her expenses for competition, travel fees, food and equipment.
Your support will allow the hardest worker in the room an opportunity to fully dedicate herself to the Olympic Qualification process over the next month and represent YOU in Tokyo in July. No donation is too small.
Much Love & Keep Punching!
