Help Get A Kiwi To The Top Of The Aussie Swim Series

Project 2014-08-19 14:20:12 +1200

I'm Chris Dunn and I'm an open water swimmer based in Auckland. I've been competing in NZ for 6 seasons and now it's time to take on the Aussies!

In the last three seasons, I've won and placed second in my age group in the NZ Ocean Swim Series, and won my age group for two years running in the Auckland Summer Swim Series at Kohimarama. In that time I've also had a number of podium finishes in both national and regional events in the pool and open water.

Last summer I had my first taste of racing in Australia at the Coolangatta round of the Great Australian Swim Series. I was stoked to finish in a very credible 3rd place for my age group.

This year I'm fitter, faster and stronger than I've ever been and my goal is to go back to Aussie and stand on the top step of the podium! There are three races in the series and a solid performance at each event will put me in a great position for a series victory.

This is where I need your help - My 9-5 pays the bills but sadly doesn't stretch as far as flights to Aussie. At present, I'm an unsponsored athlete with huge dreams. With your support, I'll be able to achieve another goal of mine and rest assured I'll throw everything I've got at those Aussies!
