I have an unprecedented passion for Weightlifting and it’s development in Wales. I am fortunate to have been involved in the sport for over 30 years, both as a competitor and coach. I have been delighted to represent Wales at 5 Commonwealth Games in both coach and team manager positions. Following a successful career in teaching, it is now a pleasure to develop all aspects of this great sport in our principality.

I am the Performance Pathway Manager here at Weightlifting Wales which involves implementing and managing the performance side of the organisation. I have had the privileged to represent Wales as a coach at the last two Commonwealth Games. If you are interested in the performance side of weightlifting or para powerlifting please get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
I am the Business Support Officer for Weightlifting Wales. I am very passionate about the sport, having been a lifter myself for over 18 years. I studied Sport Science at Bangor University before starting my employment with Weightlifting Wales in 2017. Alongside my academic and working life I have competed for Wales and Great Britain.
It is a pleasure to contribute towards the development of the organisation and to be part of a team that aspires to involve as many people as possible in our sport, so that many more people can enjoy the benefits for years to come!
I have worked in sport and the health and fitness industry for 10 years. I used to be an international athlete in athletics, competing in the 100m and Javelin before taking up Weightlifting 8 years ago. I have been lucky enough to compete at 2 Commonwealth Games and have a Commonwealth Bronze medal.
I attended the University of South Wales and received a 2:1 in BSc Strength and Conditioning. My role at WW is the Development Manager. I would like to develop the talent squad and provide education on UKAD, technique and health and wellbeing. I would like to provide guidance and assistance to clubs in developing a community for all to enjoy participating in Weightlifting.
As both the Events Manager and as an athlete, I aspire to create more competition opportunities for the Welsh calendar. I want to bring fresh ideas and create a more competitive environment, facilitating the progression of the sport within Wales. As someone with a passion for the sport and competition, I want to increase participation; amongst the existing body and those outside it. Sport is for all; creating a space for all to excel with equal opportunities is incredibly important to me.
