my name is Ioan and I am a Romanian alpine ski racer. I am 22 years old and I started skiing when I was 7.
I had a succesful junior career: among other medals, I won the Junior National Championships 5 times and participated in the Junior World Championships 2010, in France. Unfortunately, I was forced to quit skiing for personal reasons 2 years ago. In the meantime, I started attending university but I was never fulfilled with myself and realised that I was missing skiing too much. Finally, I decided to resume my racing career regardless of all the obstacles standing between me and my dream.
This is the reason why I am asking for your help in order to receive financial support. Alpine skiing is a very expensive sport and I cannot afford to cover all the expenses necessary to achieve my short-term goals. My main objectives are: place top 50 at the Winter Olympic Games 2014 (Sochi, Russia), place top 40 at the World Championships 2015 (Vail/Beaver Creek, USA), place top 30 at the World Championships 2017 (St Moritz, SUI), place top 20 at the Winter Olympic Games 2018 (South Korea).
By offering me your financial support, you will help a boy achieve his childhood dream.
