Coolum’s Bree Morris has qualified for the Triathlon World Championships on the Gold Coast in September.
Bree is delighted her hard work has paid off, but because of the cost of competing at such a world-class event, she needs a helping hand in the form of sponsorship.
“I am currently training extremely hard to achieve my personal best time for this event and I am very proud of the fact that I qualified in the top 30 women in the 25-29 age group in Australia,” she said.
“I am extremely excited to be representing Australia and especially our local area.
“As with any elite sport it is, however, very expensive to compete at this level and I am finding it extremely difficult to self-fund all the costs.”
Bree said she had been “very close” to pulling out of the event but a friend suggested she appeal to the generosity of the local business community.
She said sponsors could rest be assured any contribution would be well spent.
“I would feel immensely appreciative and grateful for even the smallest of donations,” she said.
“Some of the costs associated with preparing for an event of this calibre include professional coaching sessions, entry fees, travel and accommodation right through to maintaining and purchasing sporting equipment, uniforms and nutritional supplements.”
Bree said she first got into triathlons when she was living in Noosa in 2004.
