Greek skating champion, Dimitra Korri, seeks support as she represents Team Greece

·

Dimitra Korri wants to “bring honour to Greece through the sport of competitive figure skating,” but she needs all the support she can get to make her dream a reality.

Korri has launched a GoFundMe campaign to fund her upcoming training and participation as a member of Greece’s national figure skating team.

“As a child I never anticipated or understood the expenses that would come along with training at the elite level of ladies figure skating,” Korri writes in the GoFundMe.

“Your donations will help fund practice ice sessions, coach’s bills, travel expenses, costume expenses and personal training sessions. Even the smallest amount helps. I thank you in advance for your support throughout this competitive journey.”

Although figure skating may not be the first sport that comes to mind when people think about Greece, Korri is a four-time Greek national figure skating champion and in April 2021 she received a bronze medal at the 14th Europa Cup Skate Helena competition in Belgrade, Serbia.
