|DAYS TO GO
Hi, I’m Ashley McKenzie, triple Olympian and double gold medalist at the Commonwealth Games! I’m looking for funding to help me get to the Paris 2024 Olympic Games!
I started judo at 11 and it’s been my passion and life saver. I’ve suffered from ADHD, had a heart op and had many ups and downs in life! But judo has changed my life for the better.
I’ve represented my wonderful homeland, Great Britain, for my entire judo career. This is my final shot at the dream of being an Olympic medallist and I really need your help with funding for training camps, competitions and travel costs to help make my dream come true. I’d be so grateful for any support!
I want to put everything I have into this Olympic campaign without having to do a day job every day! I need and want to train every day, do competitions and camps, but would need backing from all my followers and supporters to achieve this!
