Natasha has competed for Wales at the 2006 Melbourne
Commonwealth Games and 2010 in Delhi.
Born in Swansea, she now lives in Leeds. A bin lorry driver, she
is a member of the World Class Weight Lifting Club in Yorkshire.
Her father, Terry, was a weightlifter and her inspiration to take
up the sport. He competed at two Olympics in 1968 and 1972 and
three Commonwealth Games. Her brother, also called Terry, went to
three Commonwealth Games.
In 2011, she won women's 69kg category at the British Senior
Championships with a snatch of 92kg and a clean and jerk of 111kg
to total 203kg.
In 2012, she was called up for Team GB to compete at the London
2012 Olympic Games. But the trip was tinged with disappointment as
she failed to complete the competition due to a leg problem that
struck her from the outset.
