Without sponsors, an Australian Olympian used her job at Woolworths to pay for her trip to Tokyo

Following her Olympic debut in Tokyo, Australian Riley Day developed a sizable online following.

The sprinter competing in the women’s 200-meter event took a plane to Japan because she did not have corporate sponsorship, which some athletes depend on to help them focus on their sport.

She put in three years of work at Woolworths and saved all penny she could in the hopes of being able to afford the 2020 Olympics trip.

The twenty-one-year-old Queenslander missed her competition’s final because it wasn’t meant to be.

Nevertheless, she set a personal record with a time of 22.56 seconds, finishing seventh overall among the competing Australian women.

She did, however, also gain a great deal of admirers from her post-race interview.

As she talked about her performance with Bruce McAvaney of Channel 7, she screamed “holy sh**t” into the microphone.

“That was a far better race than the one this morning. I’m moving to my own beat. I’m hoping for the fastest heat so I can advance to the final. That’s incredible, that’s a big PB,” she exclaimed.

“Nothing is going to stop me from being the greatest because I want to be the best.”

“I’m going to humiliate you; we want Australia to start backing you,” he said. You work in the produce section at Woolworths. I know that you shop for John each week; he is legally blind and ninety years old. Your heart is big, but you don’t have a sponsor. Australia, help this young lady, please!

I hope that Ms. Day will be given the credit she deserves and allowed to participate in the Summer Olympics in Paris in 2024.

Woolies was overjoyed to see its young, gifted athlete participate in the Games this year.

Before the competition, Woolworths sent a message on LinkedIn expressing its pride in having one of its team members represent Australia internationally.

The job stated, “Riley is a beloved team member of our Beaudesert shop in rural Queensland and is recognized for going above and beyond for our customers.

“The determined 21-year-old, dubbed the “Beaudesert Bullet,” works diligently on the track, practicing for at least three hours a day, five days a week, when she is not refilling stock or assisting our clients. Lucky you, Riley. We’re excited to meet you on the track!
