Biography

One of two Welsh weightlifters chosen, Gareth Evans won bronze at the Commonwealth Championships last year and is a former painter and decorator.

He has a daughter, Lexie, and his superstition before lifting is always putting his left boot and wrist strap on before the right. Evans placed 14th in the 69kg at the 2012 European Championships.
