A MULL man has powered his way to a silver medal in a British weightlifting competition.
Sean MacPhail, 23, competed in the British Junior Power Lifting Championships in Bournemouth on November 1, having won the regional qualifying heat in July in Newcastle, where he was crowned the Newcastle and Yorkshire Junior Champion.
Competing in the under-24, 120kg-plus weight category, Sean won the silver medal after achieving personal bests in all three lifts - bench press, dead lift and squat lift.
Final year Sean, from Tobermory, is in his final year studying for a BSc physiotherapy degree at Northumbria University.
