Olympian With No Sponsors Worked At Supermarket To Fund Her Tokyo 2020 Dream (Picture)



Australian Olympian Riley Day flew to Tokyo 2020 with no corporate sponsors to fund her expenses, pay for coaches, and finance expenditures that all athletes have to account for when fighting to compete.

She worked at Woolworths for three years, where she saved every pay check to fund her Olympics campaign.

Riley Day beat her own personal record and now her personal-best result is 22.56 seconds. She couldn't contain herself during her post-race interview Channel 7:

Holy sh*t. That was a much better race than this morning. I've got my groove. Now I hope it's the fastest heat so I can get in the final. Because that is a massive PB. That's awesome.

The rising star is now number eight in Australia, but says she is still striving to be number one.

I want to be the best and I'm going to stop at nothing to be the best!


Her workplace also shared an endearing message on LinkedIn:
