Experience:

Christian is a seasoned Brisbane based Lifter and Olympic Weightlifting Coach with over a decade of experience in the sport both on and off the platform at Club, State, and National levels. Commencing in 2005, Christian has completed his AWF Level 1, 2 & 3 coaching qualifications under the guidance of some of the best Australian & International Olympic Weightlifting Coaches. In 2009-2011 Christian was fortunate to be mentored & coached by Leo Isaac, honing his technical skills as a Lifter and sharpening his ‘coaches eye’ under direct supervision of an elite level Coach and former Olympic & Commonwealth level athlete.
