About the project

Inspired and fascinated by the 2008 Beijing Olympics I decided to take up the sport of Olympic Weightlifting aged 17, it involves two lifts; the snatch and the Clean & Jerk, it pushes you to test your speed, power and strength. I've been fortunate enough to compete at the 2014 Commonwealth games in Glasgow and also at multiple Europeans and World Championships.

A series of injury setbacks saw me not compete fully for two years but after a great year of training and narrowly missing the Rio 2016 Games, I now have my sights set firmly on a podium place at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

The 2016 Commonwealth Championships in Penang, Malaysia serves as a key part of my preparation towards that goal, so with your support I’ll be able to attend the competition and ensure my preparation is optimal.

I need your support to help me realise my dream and contribute to this great project!

Thank you all!!
