Yelyzaveta MelnychukNewton Center Fechten, Freerunning, Kampfsport
I’m professional fencer from Ukraine. I currently live, study and practice in Boston. I came here because there is a warin my country. My family stays in Ukraine during the war. I’m here by myself, working as a referee and assistant coach. So, I can pay for studying, rent, food, etc.
I’m trying to find a sponsorship for my sport path. Ido fencing for 11 years, I’m National Team Member of Ukraine. In July I won a competition in New York and received the title of Master of Sport in the US. I’m on my way to the Olympics. I do believe in myself because I’m working so hard every single day, I have National level coach Alex and my team Dynamo Fencing Center with whom I train. Without them, it would be impossible.
Also, I’m a runner. I created a 1000 days (about 2 and a half years) challenge for myself. The idea is to run every single day non-stop. I’m on Day 914 right now.This is impressive, isn’t it?
Even now I’m trying to beat the fastest 1-kilometer time in the world. My record is 3:17 for today.
I need sponsorship because I want to use every opportunity - go to fencing camps, go to International competitions and try my best to win, so I can take my place in the Olympics.
