Imelda Wistey began swimming when she was 10 after her sister started. She did not make the team at first because she couldn’t swim the breaststroke properly. She worked hard to fix her kick and then was allowed on the team.
13 years later, Imelda is now an NCAA qualifier, Philippine National Record Holder, and Southeast Asian Games medalist in breaststroke, training hard to make the 2016 Olympics. The Iowa State grad needs our help to get there. Imelda needs to travel to qualification meets to become an Olympian and you can make it happen. Let’s do this!
We are proud to support all the swimming related Dreamfuel campaigns with a $100 donation each and want to thank all of our premium members who make this possible!
Dreamfuel is the premier high-level crowd-funding platform specifically designed by and for athletes. They work with each athlete or athletic organization to tap into the community that surrounds them, thereby engaging new fans and supporters along the way.
There is an assumption that all Olympians, Olympic hopefuls and elite athletes have sponsors. This is far from the case, as 85% of Olympic hopefuls’ income is less than 15k USD / year. Dreamfuel’s goal is to provide athletes with a new revenue stream to support their incredible efforts outside of or in addition to the traditional means of sponsorships and governing body stipends.
