Aussie Olympian has funding reduced

South Australian Olympic trampolinist Blake Gaudry has recently been forced to pay much of his own way due to funding cuts by Gymnastics Australia and the South Australian Sports Institute (SASI).

Gaudry placed 13th at the 2012 London Olympics and was the sole Australian representative.

He is expected to be a medal contender in Rio de Janerio in 2016 and has received some help from Gymnastics South Australia, but is in search of funds to help keep his dreams alive. …

Despite the program being cut from SASI and a lack of a National Program, Gaudry holds a ‘high performance’ scholarship with SASI, which allows him access to the strength and conditioning centre and the recovery centre. …

He still has a personal sponsor, Joe Andon, CEO of Vuly Trampolines.

Good luck.
