Such has been Collier's progress since taking up the sport less than four years ago, it's though that the teenager could have a chance of joining Kirkbride and claim one of the
three lifting positions for British men
at the 2012 Olympics.

His performance came off the back of finishing 17th at the World Youth Championships in Lima, Peru - a minor blimp following an impressive year, which in addition to becoming a British schoolboy champion also saw him claim second place at the inaugural
earlier this year.
"My performance at the World Youths wasn't my best, but I knew I just had to sort out my technique and I'm pretty pleased with my lifts (100kg and 128kg)," said Collier after victory at the British Youth Championships in Lilleshall, Shropshire.
Other winners included Parkhead's Mitchell Arkle, who at just 14 years-of-age totalled an impressive 118kg in the 50kg class and 15-year-old Robert Smith of Kilmarnock, claiming the 56kg class with a total of 116kg.
