Speaking about the recent European Championships, Chris said…
"It's wonderful to be back in the Great Britain Team representing my country again, this time winning medals and setting records in Masters categories. Powerlifting as a sport has always helped with my own personal evolution, so to be back after a short career break, it feels wonderful."
"What Powerlifting means to me has changed over this last few years, with me starting to enjoy the sport again thank to the members of GPC-GB, I feel very grateful to have this opportunity. After so many injuries over this last few years, it feels wonderful to be back in contention for medals and records."
"I'm very much looking forward to representing the Federation of Gay Games in Paris as one of their Global Ambassadors, helping them to promote their Scholarship programme and assisting them to deliver the message of - Participation, Inclusion, Personal Best".
