Zach Courtney (S5) did extremely well in the Scottish Junior and East of Scotland Weightlifting competition held in Pitlochry earlier this month.
Having only started lifting weights just over a year ago he is a relative newcomer and this competition was only the second that he had competed in.
He won the East District of Scotland Weightlifting Championships by snatching 90kg and he clean and jerked 112kg in the 85kg class. At the same event Zach came second in the Scottish Junior (Under 23) Weightlifting Championships by repeating the weights in both categories.
Clearly his daily training sessions at Edinburgh University are paying off.
