Year end 2017

Here we are the end off 2017. Fair to say it has been a great year and at times like this it is nice to reflect on the tea that has passed.
So what’s happened in my lifting career then that stands out most. Tbh I am not sure this year I managed to retain my IPF World and European Masters titles. And along the way gaining a bunch off individual medals as well as the overall ones that count a bit more.
Then there was my Sporting Award from the Local radio for outstanding contribution to sport. That was something new this year and to win the first ever one was just fantastic. Again we have the British squat record I broke at the start off the year 312.5Kgs did an increase on my previous record by 1.5Kg. Strange to think that was standing for about 3 years and was also the current IPF masters world 74kg record at that point. Think it is fair to say that there have been a few things going in that went well for me this year.
So what is next then in 2018 ? Well firstly we have the British championships in a few short weeks, this year it is being held in Horncastle and Marc Giles and his crew run a great comp there. It is at this comp myself and Phil Frost have a Bench off to see who can press the most weight there. You may have seen the hashtag #GBBO it had nothing to do with the bake off this time.
Best off luck Frosty second is a good place to be.
On that front my shoulders have started to feel back to normal and the weights are coming back up nicely so let’s just watch this space and see how the next few weeks go in the final stages off the build up for the comp.
So as this year ends and another starts can I say a Big Thank you to My sponsors who are there Time and time again.
NRG Fuel. Titan support systems. Vicegrip
And to the Monsters down at Yonkas Gym who are there to spot me and help me out, cheers guys
So Thanks to you all for your help and support in all I do.
So for now may I wish you all a Happy new year and may you all get your dreams in the year ahead.
