What will be the best thing about watching weightlifting live at Glasgow 2014?

The best part of watching the weightlifting at Glasgow 2014 will be witnessing the raw power on display and experiencing the atmosphere of the Games.

Who is your weightlifting hero?

MY favourite weightlifter has to be Michael Yule. He has established himself as one of the country's top power lifters since being identified on a previous Help for Heroes programme run by British Weight Lifting.

Which weightlifting star should people watch out for at Glasgow 2014?

Craig Carfray. The Kilmarnock weightlifter is just 21 and fingers crossed he can qualify. The local support will definitely be with him at Glasgow 2014.

Why should people who don’t know anything about weightlifting buy tickets to watch it at Glasgow 2014?

People who don't know anything about weightlifting should take the chance to buy tickets as the Weightlifting events will have a great atmosphere –everyone in the room will be willing the lifter to succeed, and it makes for a great sporting event and all round occasion.

Can you sum up what Glasgow 2014 will be like in three words?

Fantastic sporting event!
