Andrew Saxton (weightlifter)
Andrew Saxton (born 1967), is a male former weightlifter who competed for Great Britain and England.
|Born||4 May 1967|
Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, Australia
He represented England and won a bronze medal in the 100 kg sub-heavyweight division, at the 1986 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh, Scotland. Four years later he represented England and won three gold medals in the 100 kg sub-heavyweight division, at the 1990 Commonwealth Games in Auckland, New Zealand. The three medals were won during an unusual period when three medals were awarded in one category (clean and jerk, snatch and combined) which invariably led to the same athlete winning all three of the same colour medal.
