“I have represented Australia in Weightlifting and have also Coached at National level in the sport since 1976, during which time I have achieved success at the highest International levels.
I won gold at the 2008 Australasian Masters as well as being invited in the same year to work with SAS personnel at Campbell Barracks, helping develop innovative lifting and strength building exercises.
In 1998 I coached the Tongan National Weightlifting Team (at the invitation of the International Olympic Committee) and in addition to my other successes I won the Australian Games Gold and Afroasian Games gold in 1994.
I am also a Level 2 Accredited Weightlifting Coach. After a successful career in competitive weightlifting I recently joined Neuro Strength Australia as a platform for delivering treatment programs for those
suffering from neurological and movement disorders. Treatment is centred on a range of weight lifting therapies, all of which are aligned to evidence based medicine. I am proud to have successfully
helped so many people suffering from debilitating diseases. I am also involved with Olympilift which I founded in 1995 and where I have been Head Coach ever since. I work well with teams of people of
varying sizes and enjoy the process of team working very much, getting people to work as effectively as possible towards the desired business objective is especially satisfactory; and I like motivating
and encouraging people too. It gives me great satisfaction to see everything come together”
