A schoolteacher that has become a champion weightlifter is heading to Poland to compete in the world championships.<br />
<br />
Hannah Lewis, 36, had to raise the money herself to be able to compete as there is no funding for weightlifting in the UK.<br />
<br />
The mum-of-two needed to raise £1,000 to cover her entry fee, hotel accommodation, travel and even her GB kit or she would not be able to compete, despite winning gold at the European championships recently.<br />
<br />
But she smashed her target, raising more than £2,000 and now has her sights set on the World Masters Championships.
