Meet Chris Murray

Chris Murray is already a two-time British Champion at the age of 21, and is one of the biggest prospects in British weightlifting. Having trained as a competitive diver when he was younger, Chris turned his focus to weightlifting in his late teens and quickly became British champion in 2018, which he retained the following year. Chris holds all of the junior British records in his weight class and has two English titles to go with his British Championships. Away from weightlifting, Chris is studying for a degree in Sport & Exercise Science at Loughborough University.
