Stuart Jamieson's journey to become a British powerlifting champion is all the more remarkable because of his medical history.
Stuart was born with Spina Bifida, Scoliosis, Kyphosis and Diastematomyelia - all conditions that meant that his parents were told that he would never walk.
However, through the sheer determination of Stuart and his parents, they worked to ensure his medical conditions would not stop him from leading a full life.
Stuart now competes against, and beats, able-bodied athletes and became a champion in the British Powerlifting Championships in October of last year.
He has now been selected to represent Scotland in the Powerlifting Commonwealth Games in December of this year.
