Braidholm Powerlifters Victorious

The Braidholm Powerlifting Squad of Graeme Gilchrist, Andrew Mather and Fraser Gordon, all became Scottish Champions for their weight and age group and are set to head down to Dorset in March for the British Championships. All 3 set a personal best in either squat, bench press or deadlift and with the British Championships just round the corner they’re now ready to raise the bar even higher.

The Scottish Championships took place at Bellahouston Palace of Art on Saturday 11th of December. Graeme Gilchrist said – “We put in the training and got the outcome we were after. Of course none of us would be successful in the sport if it hadn’t been for our amazing coach and friend Hugh Long.”


The boys train 3 times a week in the club house gym on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. The British Championships are on the 19th and 20th of March in the University Of Bournemouth.
