Olympic dream: Tori West to represent Australia at the 2024 Paris Olympics!

We are excited to announce that Tori West, the talented Australian heptathlete we proudly sponsored, has officially qualified for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. This incredible achievement is a testament to her unwavering dedication, resilience, and athletic excellence.

Tori's journey in the heptathlon, a gruelling event comprising seven track and field disciplines over two days, is nothing short of inspiring. The heptathlon includes the 100m hurdles, high jump, shot put, 200m, long jump, javelin, and 800m. In 2024, Tori has achieved the highest score in Oceania and the highest by an Australian in 16 years.

Qualifying for the Olympics required Tori to be among the top 24 heptathletes in the world by June 30th. She secured her spot with a stellar performance at a major competition in Germany in June, ensuring her ranking met the qualification criteria.

BTC Markets embraced the opportunity to support Tori’s journey because we are passionate about nurturing Australian talent. Tori embodies dedication, resilience, and excellence, making her an ideal partner for us. Commenting on the partnership, our CEO Caroline Bowler said, "BTC Markets is dedicated to supporting homegrown talents. Our partnership with Tori is a testament to her commitment to athletic excellence, which aligns with our values of delivering the best to our clients. Tori's dedication and achievements are truly inspiring, and we are proud to support her and excited to see what the future holds."

Tori's athletic journey began at the Townsville North Star club, where she first showcased her talent. Her impressive achievements in boxing and subsequent transition to heptathlon competitions have marked her as a versatile and formidable athlete. Throughout her career, Tori has demonstrated remarkable tenacity and passion, mastering seven track and field disciplines and winning accolades such as the U18 Australian Javelin Champion and the 2020 Australian Champion.

Expressing her gratitude, Tori said, "Your support means the world to me. It allows me to focus on my training and competitions, knowing that I have a strong team behind me. The Olympics have always been a dream of mine, and being able to represent Australia on such a prestigious stage is such an honour. This partnership is not just about my personal goals; it's about inspiring younger athletes to pursue excellence and never give up. I hope to be a role model for them, showing that with hard work, dedication, and with the right support, anything is possible.”

Beyond athletics, Tori is also a trailblazer in the web3.0 space, passionate about helping athletes tokenise their sports and health data. As the founder and CEO of Equil Labs, she believes that blockchain technology can open a new economy of value for sports data and health, creating real earning opportunities for athletes. In 2022 and 2023, she received a developer grant from Ripple and has shared her insights internationally.

As Tori prepares to compete on the world stage at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, we stand by her, proud and excited for what lies ahead. Her journey is a powerful reminder that with dedication, hard work, and the right support, extraordinary achievements are possible. Congratulations, Tori!
