Thomas is the newest up and coming strength athlete in Scotland right now. Tom from Point on the Isle of Lewis has achieved so much in a such a short space of time. Training from just his garage he has forged himself a very promising career. At just 21 years of age and after just 2 years of training Tom competed in the North Midland Powerlifting Championship. He won his category on the day and his raw bench press of 145kg broke the current Scottish Bench Press Record for his age and weight. Tom qualified for the British Finals in July 2012. Since then, he has competed in the Scottish Open Championships in which he won his section on the day and won the Scottish Under 23 Title.
After this performance Tom was selected to represent Scotland as part of the Scotland Squad for the Commonwealth Powerlifting Championships in October 2011 where he won four gold medals. Gold for each individual discipline (Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift) as well as the overall Gold and the Commonwealth Title.
Tom then wanted to try his hand at Strongman. Strong man is very different from Powerlifting. It requires not only all out strength for one repetition, but also strength endurance, power and cardio vascular fitness and is very demanding on every part of the body. So far Tom has won is first competition in Strongman (Crayford Mazda Classic Novice Strongman). His new goals are Scotland’s Strongest Man and UK`s Strongest Man.
Thomas had a difficult 2014 season with illness but fought this to a very strong finish in the Scottish qualifier and final! Unfortunately he had to miss the end of this season but is on the road to full recovery and hungry for the 2015 season!
