Hello, my name is Sara Golden and I am a High Performance Elite Judo Athlete.
I have been practicing Judo since I was 6 years old and now it has become a way of life for me. Judo has become my passion and it has helped make me the person I am today. Judo is the most practiced sport in the world and was the first martial art to be accepted into the Olympics in 1964 at Tokyo Japan.
I would like to invite you to take part in my Judo development as I pursue my goals and dreams in the higher levels of this sport where my abilities, training and preparedness will be tested at bigger and bigger events.
I am currently the #1 ranked Cadet 63kg in the USA, #1 Junior 63kg in the USA and the #4 ranked senior 63kg in the USA. I am internationally ranked 30th in the world. In 2018 I have competed in the Dominican Republic, Poland, Portugal, Canada and all over the United States. My next event is the Jr World Championships in October.
To complicate this already steep financial hurdle, in the U.S.A. we are experiencing decreased funding. This coupled with my limited personal resources, I will most likely not be able to follow my dreams to the ultimate event, the Olympic games in 2024 & 2028 without support.
Your financial backing will enable me to clear financial hurdles that will enable me to concentrate on training and building the foundation that will foster the development of reaching the dreams and goals of Olympic Gold.
