Luke's Olympic Dream Fund

$4,365 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 42 people in 40 months
My name is Luke Pechmann. I have wanted to compete in the Olympics since I was six years old. I am from Detroit Lakes, Minnesota and graduated from Moorhead High School.
I qualified for my first U.S. Olympic Trials at age 17 after becoming a state champion in the 50 free. I swam collegiately for the University of Arizona.
After college the real world of student loans and work set in and almost killed my Olympic dream. I refused to give up. I spent all of my time reading books on biomechanics, strength, recovery and personal development. I thought that if I could manage to move to LA, start a business, coach swimming, coach strength training while training for Olympic Trials I could support my dream.
I then met a very important individual who helped me realize I had no support network. I was trying to do everything myself and was unwilling to ask for help. Hustling around LA was not a sustainable or conducive lifestyle for making the Olympics. I now realize that if I really want this dream to come true I will need financial support from people like you who want to see me succeed. I am willing to do whatever it takes to get there. I am willing to sacrifice more, learn more and pay more attention to detail than any 25 year old you have ever met.
Please help me by contributing towards my training fees, competition expenses, travel expenses, tissue work, blood tests and the astronomical amount of food required to fuel a growing male swimmer.
I will provide value to all those that donate by giving you key insights into health, nutrition, defying age, increasing strength, happiness, mindfulness and many other ways to become an Evolving Human.
