Victor Chavez

THE STORY:

My name is Victor Chávez, my FIS Code is 1950006 I am from Ica, this is a city located at 4 and a half hours from lima in the south of Perú. "Ica is the sandboarding world capital" Ica has the highest sandparks and the biggests dunes around the world i fell in love with sandboarding becouse i grewn up practicing it, when i discovered snowboarding i felt like i fell in love again, but there isn´t enought snow in Pastoruri (the unique good peruvian snowy to practice snowboarding) becouse of the global warmming. in 2007 i won the last snowboarding Peruvian contest but trying snowboarding at my firts time in my life, and i got my FIS (International Ski Federation) liscence to represent my country abroad acoording to my record in snowboarding and sandboarding.

I always wanted to compete in international FIS contests representing my country but snowboarding is a really expensive sport and it´s imposible to find sponsor in Perú becouse there isn´t snow sports culture. My family doesn´t have that kind of money so i´ve always worked since i´m a child and now more than ever i have to do it in order to pay for all the expenses that training and competing in this sport demands but i keep trainig much time in the sand that in the snow for now.

I STARTED TO REPRESENT MY COUNTRY ABROAD IN 2009 BECOUSE I WANNA GET TO THE OLYMPICS WINTERS GAME "SOCHI 2014" BEING THE FIRST PERUVIAN SNOWBOARDER IN THE SNOWSPORTS HISTORY AND SO I WOULD LIKE TO FOLLOW A SNOWBOARD TRAINIG PROGRAM WITH THE BRASILIAN´S OLYMPIC TEAM BEFORE ALL FIS CONTEST IN THIS SEASON 2011-12, THE TOTAL COST OF THIS PROGRAM IS US$ 4300 IT IS EXPENSIVE FOR ME. I KNOW THE WAY TO SOCHI 2014 WILL HAS A HIGH SPORT EXPENSE BUT IF I START WITH THIS PROGRAM IN JULY 15TH I KNOW I´LL CATCH ONE OF THE FIRTS PLACES IN THE PODIUM ON THIS SOUTH AMERICAN SNOWBOARD CUP 2011 IN AGOST.

TRAINING IN A ESPECIAL PROGRAM FOR 2 MONTHS = US$ 4,300.00 AND THEM COMPETE.

 THIS IS MY PROJETC NOW... BEFORE THE NEXT STEP IN MY WAY TO QUALIFY AT SOCHI ´14 "FROM THE SAND TO THE SNOW"

The Team: $0 TOTAL RAISED SO FAR
