Biography

Cyrille Fagat Tchatchet II

Cyrille came to the UK from Cameroon in 2014. Whilst waiting for his asylum claim to be assessed, Cyrille had some difficult times, and says weightlifting saved him from some of his lowest moments. Three years after his asylum claim was approved, he now has multiple British weightlifting records under his belt, including having won the British, English and BUCS weightlifting championships for 2017, 2018 and 2019. He recently graduated with a first-class degree in Mental Health Nursing from Middlesex University and sees caring for others as a way of “giving back”. He now hopes to begin doing a master’s degree alongside his training.
