New stretch target
Our Stretch Target £1200
..I never believed that I would get to the stage that my project was fully funded - many thanks to everyone who has donated so far. If you are still willing to donate I have set a stretch target that will help me even more on my journey.
What will I use the extra money for?
I need a variety of extra training items over the year including Training shoes and clothing for cold weather. My main expense is footwear - running spikes for training, ice spikes for racing and general training shoes for my other training requirements.
To raise funds for Dom to participate in the Bobsleigh Training Programme for the 2016 Youth Olympic Games in Lillehammer for Team GB.
Hi, My names Dominic but I prefer to be called Dom. I'm 15 years old and live in Watford, Hertfordshire.
For the last few months I have been training with the Great Britain Bobsleigh Squad at Bath University on the push track. I was asked to try out for this sport after performing well in athletics.
I have been training very hard at bobsleigh but I now need to prove that I can do the real thing by going on a number of ice camps and learning how to drive and race a sled. This is very expensive but unless I go I won't be able to progress. I was fortunate enough to have been selected to go on a Bob School Training Camp in December last year which was funded by British Bobsleigh and SportsAid but I still need funding for future training both on and off ice.
The next ice camp is in March in Lillehammer, Norway.
I participate in a number of sports at school and also belong to an Athletics Club (Dacorum and Tring) and a rugby club called Fullerians RFC.
My best event is the 60m sprint and after only 1 year of training for this event I am presently ranked number 1 in the UK rankings for athletes under 17, even though I am still only 15 :)
My PB is 6.82 seconds for the 60m and 10.78 for the 100m. I am presently the Hertfordshire 100m champion and current record holder.
