Helping a Royal Navy elite sportsman to power through 2023
We are delighted to announce McAndrew Martin is proudly sponsoring Petty Officer, Wesley McGuinness, a serving member of the Royal Navy and talented powerlifting athlete, who for over a decade, has been focused on achieving his desire to reach the very top of his sport and represent the Royal Navy at the highest level of powerlifting.
Wesley, who began powerlifting in 2011, has competed at several major International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) championships around the world, and in 2022, represented Team GB at 4 international events – he’s now ranked 6th in the world in his weight category. His enthusiasm, commitment, discipline and dedication to powerlifting has not gone unnoticed by Royal Navy Sport Command, as he is now one of just four Service personnel to be accepted into the Royal Navy’s Elite Athletes Scheme.
Powerlifting is a self-funded sport, so McAndrew Martin is delighted to be partnering with Wesley and his team, ‘Team McGuinness’, as we will help facilitate Wesley to achieve his 2023 aspirations; qualifying as a British Powerlifting Referee, organising fundraising events, raising the profile of sport within the UK Armed Forces, supporting local and national powerlifting events and raising awareness of testicular, penile and prostate cancer.
In 2023, Wesley hopes to compete in The English Powerlifting Association Championships and the IPF Commonwealth Bench Press Championships. We will keep you updated with his progress and we wish Wesley the very best of luck for these events.
