I’m a 54-year old with 34+ years in the Royal Canadian Air Force; I am currently the Military Escort Team Leader at the Afghanistan Memorial Hall at National Defence Headquarters in Ottawa. I spent my career as a technician before recently accepting a commission to Captain as an Aerospace Engineer. I’ve been lifting for about 15 years. I actually started competing before I started training. I’ve done over 50 competitions in 4 countries, including 3 times at Commonwealth Championships and one World Bench Championships.
Some goals I have as in the APV Records person and as a member of the OPA executive: I want to usher in a close alliance between CAF Powerlifting and the CPU, first using the OPA to springboard CAF referee training, then feed CAF Powerlifting members into the OPA. I also intend to train a cadre of military spotters who can then be used in OPA/CPU competitions.
