Frank Rothwell has developed his own web site (http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/franweights) detailing his weightlifting exploits Further information and pictures are therefore available there. Frank has recently added a video section to his website with 1966 World Weightlifting Championships Berlin and Training in the Kitchen being two of the clips

The newspaper article shown below gives a very brief synopsis of some of Frank's weightlifting exploits:

This video shows a clip of Mr. Rothwell who was the first and only coach at the time in Britain to teach kids that young Olympic weightlifting. Look at the film texture, hair style of the people watching the lifts, bell bottoms... it's mid 1970s! How old are the kids lifting on the platform? Simply amazing!
