Join Sarah at the 2018 Youth Olympics in Argentina as she proudly represents New Zealand in sport climbing!

Main image

Sarah is 17 and absolutely crazy about climbing. She has been climbing for five years and been competing for over 2 years.

All her hard work has come together this year and Sarah is now the first ever New Zealand climber to qualify and be selected for the Youth Olympic Games.

She secured her place at the Youth Olympics by cleaning up at the Oceania Climbing Championships in October of this year. She saw off competition from around the Pacific to achieve the highest overall placing in the combined disciplines of lead, speed and bouldering, taking home three gold medals for New Zealand.

The Youth Olympics will be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 2018. For the next year Sarah is committing her life towards preparing herself for the Youth Olympics. This is where you come in.

We want passionate supporters to enable Sarah to keep her focus on her training and development.

She is leaving home and moving to Tauranga where she will train for the next year at an elite level. She will also receive advice and support from the Adams Centre for High Performance as an elite athlete. Part of this journey includes competing internationally at 2-3 events.

Climbing will feature for the first time at the summer Olympics in Tokyo in 2020. We want New Zealand there and you can help. There is a lot of work ahead so Sarah is able to do her very best at the Games and make New Zealand proud!

First up we need at least $2,500 to simply help fund Sarah to compete at the Youth Olympics (unlike the full Olympics, youth athletes must contribute towards their attendance).

Use of Funds:

But if we hit our target early, then there's still a lot more to fund including:

- travel costs and entry fees for competing at international events including next year's Youth World Cup

- climbing gear (climbing shoes, climbing chalk, harnesses, clothing)

- elite coaching / high performance fees and subsidies

We would love for you to come on board and join Sarah as she represents New Zealand at the Youth Olympics!
