Chris Murray won his first international medal at the Commonwealth Youth Games back in 2015, now he is setting his sights on adding senior silverware to the collection. 

It was in Samoa that Murray won that bronze medal in the 62kg category, fulfilling some of the potential in a sport that he initially discovered by watching videos on YouTube. 

Murray then studied at Loughborough University and it was there that his development really took off. 

A career highlight remains victory at the BUCS Championship in 2019 while two years later he won a third British Championship title, setting three British Under-23 records.
