I know my Olympic weightlifting trade well!
As well as coaching novice lifters from the age of 9 years of age through to 60 years of age. I train athlete to lifts safely, we attend competitions and we win!
I coached, tutored and assessed aspiring coaches on Olympic weightlifting courses. I hold UKCC (the UK Coaching Certification) Level 4 qualification, which is the highest that one could achieve.
It is awarded to coaches that display evidence (signed off by the British Weight Lifting, UKCC and Newcastle City Council) of coaching practice via portfolios, showing growth of grassroots right through competitive levels, provision of safe coaching and learning enviroment as required by the National Governing Body and the local City Council.
Most importantly, I practice it daily and compete.
Most recent proud sporting moments were in:
- 2014, when I became Gold and an Absolute European Medalist in -58kg category, at the European Masters’ Championships Absolute (overall), held in Denmark
- 2014, -58kg Silver medallist at the World Masters Weightlifting Games, held in France
- 2015, when I became European Masters’ Games Absolute (overall) and -58kg Gold Medal Winner.
If you are interested in learning how to safely execute Olympic lifts or you’d like me to correct your current lifts, please do not hesitate to get in touch. I will be happy to help!
