    I have been a strength training enthusiast since the very first day I joined a gym at the age of 16 back in 2011, since then I have become a part of Team GB in powerlifting and competed to the highest level of the sport and won the IPF commonwealth championships 2017, IPF European championships 2017 and the first and only ever Scottish person to win a gold medal and become IPF World Champion 2017. I have also won the Scottish championships 3 times, and British championships 2 times.
