About the project

Hi my name is Alex collier and I do Olympic weightlifting for Team GB/England. Olympic weightlifting involves two lifts; the snatch and the Clean & Jerk, you get three attempts at each lift and at the end your biggest snatch and biggest clean and jerk get added up to make a total. its a demanding sport that pushes you to test your speed, power and strength.

I first started weightlifting when I was thirteen when my local club were offering trials at my high school and I have loved it ever since. Since starting weightlifting I have been lucky enough to represent both GB and England at different international competitions.

I have been hampered with a injury the past several months so I haven't competed since January but the last time I competed I became British senior champion and came 4th at the commonwealth championships in India.

So I am currently looking for sponsorship/funding to help me turn my dream of competing at the Commonwealth Games into a reality.

Thanks you very much,

Alex Collier.

Funding

The funds I will receive will be used for transportation, equipment, nutrition and gym fees.

The male lifters for GB currently don't get funded so it's a struggle to commit full time to weightlifting without any funding

So any funding would be a massive help for me.
