Athletes Gel’s 18 year old Ambassador, John Cooley, aims to qualify himself for the 2024 Olympics. John is one of the youngest sailors in the 49er Olympic class. This ultimately motivates John, even more so, to do even better than the experienced sailors in the fleet.

The 49er is a two-handed, high performance sailing dingy. John started sailing in Year 5 with school at Woollahra Sailing Club, he developed is basic skills and progressed into the Optimist Class until he started Year 9, then he moved into the 29er. John now competes in the 49er Olympic class whilst completing his Undergraduate degree in Property Economics at the University of Technology Sydney.

Sailing is an expensive sport and to be competitive, it involves a lot of time overseas at international regattas. For John to achieve his dream of competing at the Olympics and winning Gold, he needs your help.
