 Fitz Lloyd Walker

I was introduced to the YMCA in1973 by Richard Baraclough a lecturer at North Trafford College; he was also my Judo instructor. I had gained a black belt in Judo and he thought wrestling would improve my ground work. Since then I have never looked back and competed in 3 Olympic Games,3 Commonwealth Games, 3 Commonwealth championships and also gained a place in the Guinness Book of Records.

Over the years I have made many lifelong friends at the YMCA. It is not only the place I train but also where I socialise.
