Veronica Torr (Roni), current National Senior Women’s Heptathlon title holder, 2015 Oceania and Australian Champion for Heptathlon, 2015 World University 6th place and ranked 22nd in the world as at June 1st, is just 124 points away from Olympic nomination standard.

In order to achieve her goal of going to the Olympics, she must compete in the northern hemisphere (Germany) to punch her ticket to the Rio games.

A last minute hiccup has seen Roni scramble to find all the neccessary money to compete in Europe. A Givealittle page has been set up to help her get to the event in Germany to earn the last 124 qualifying points.

Please support Roni in her quest. Visit her Givealittle page and help her get to the Olympics

Generous supporters have so far donated $2,853.00 of her $4,000 goal.
