My name is Louise Bradley; I am 14 years old and an Elite Diver.
I have been selected to attend an elite diving training camp in China, in October 2016 and would like support in raising the money for the trip. The total cost of the trip is £1600 and I am doing other fundraising events to achieve this total. This training camp is a wonderful opportunity for me to train with Chinese Elite divers and further develop my skills within the sport.
I am very focused and want to be the best. I am a member of Crystal Palace Diving Club and train for 20+ hours per week. I was talent spotted when I was 7 years old when diving coaches came to my primary school, and I now train under Chen Wen (three times Head Olympic Coach), along with other top coaches from Crystal Palace.
At the age of 11, I was the UK National Skills diving champion (2013) and have been part of the England Talent Zone squad as a potential future Olympic GB diver. This squad is where Tom Daley and other Olympic medalists started their diving pathway to the Olympics. My progress in diving is tracked by Sport England and my ultimate goal is to represnt GB at the 2020 Olympics.
Last July (2015), I began my international journey where I competed for England, in Rome. I won a Silver medal on Platform (7.5m and 5m) and a Bronze on 3m Springboard. I also came 4th on 1m Springboard and managed to beat all my personal best scores on all boards.
I am really excited about the training camp in China and truely appreciate any support that you could give me to get there.
Thank you for believing in me and helping me to achieve my goal.
