Jess' Story

"I first heard about Olympic Weightlifting during my 3rd year of University. Olympic
weightlifting is widely used by S+C coaches to help build on power output for a lot of sports, and power is a key element for judo. I only had a few sessions specifically dedicated to Olympic Lifts and I was notoriously bad at the technical side, but I loved how strong I felt throwing weights over my head.

Fast forward to 2022 and my technique is thankfully a lot better than it used to be. Four
years down the line and my weightlifting career has completely blown up! I’ve recently
come back from competing at the Commonwealth Games where I won a silver medal. It was an absolutely incredible experience.

I have ticked a lot of things off my goal list since everything reopened after the pandemic. Some of the main goals were to compete for Team GB at both the World and European Championships, where I placed 7th and 12th respectably, putting me up on the world ranking list! But the main goal of competing in the formidable Olympic Games is still in the pipeline. It's going to be the hardest thing that I have ever attempted to qualify for due to the reduced number of competitors at the next Olympic Games, but I am willing to give up the next 2 years of my life for this goal.


The work never stops and the competition is always right behind you, reminding you not to let your guard down.

TWO-FIT  has been a great ally in my journey, providing me with top quality kit to train in. My favourite has to be the teal green sports bra though. One of my most worn bits of sportswear ever!"
