Powerlifter Strikes Gold!

WIGTOWNSHIRE powerlifter Raymond Fraser has won his second world championship in four years.

And he travelled all the way to Argentina to strike gold.

Raymond (53), a joiner with Robison and Davidson, lives at 22 Oakland Avenue, Stranraer.

To compete in the Masters 2 67.5 kilo class, he travelled for 40 hours from Stranraer until he was able to get some sleep in Cordoba, where the championships were held.

This week, Raymond told the 'Free Press' that after a disastrous start in the squat he had to produce good results in the other two disciplines.

And he did.

His bench press and then his speciality the dead lift, sent him soaring into the gold medal position.
