Kenya trip: A weight on my shoulders

Theo dominates the squat rack!

We were toured around St Johns and went to the weightlifting room. Instantly you could see the contrast between our facilities and theirs as their equipment is tatty and rusty.

The captain of weightlifting, with his intimidating muscles, asked me to have a go, so of course I did. I obviously impressed them all with my strength!

The members use this weight room as a distraction but also a way of hope and way out of the slum. It was very inspiring to hear the way the people spoke about how dedicated they were towards their sports, for example Robert, the weightlifting captain, my new bestie, trained 2 times a day 4 to 5 times a week – absolutely remarkable.
