Get Me To The World University Games!!!

Hey everyone its me Sylvia again!!! Last year with your help I placed 5th in my weight class and was able to make my 1st debut as an international weightlifter at the World University Championships in Israel. Since I have been back in the states I'm not gonna lie...training has definitely not been a breeze. The stressors of life always seem to show up at the worst time, but I've managed pretty well I must say. Through it all I have qualified for another chance to represent my country at the 2013 World University Games. This is the 2nd largest sport participation event in the world following the Olympics, and USAW has announced that they will be sending a team to this very event. As expected this year, over 13,500 University athletes from over 170 countries, participating in 13 mandatory and 14 optional sports totalizing 27 sports....the biggest ever in the event history!!!. I placed 5th last year so who knows what can happen this year!!! If you can help me reach my destination in Kazan, Russia this year in any way I would greatly appreciate it and love you forever!!!
