BIOGRAPHY

Welshman Gareth Evans started weightlifting aged 12 when he joined the local Holyhead Weightlifting Club, while he gave up his job as a painter and decorator to prepare for London 2012.

His superstition before lifting is always putting his left boot and wrist strap on before the right.

Gareth's best ever finish was in the 2011 Commonwealth Senior Championships where he placed third before representing Team GB at London 2012, finishing 17th.
