WITH three down and two to go, a Tyne Valley wrestler is aiming to achieve something that no other has managed.

Langley’s Jack Brown (24) has a clean sweep of world championships on his radar as he targets success over five different weight classes. The record is four in one year.

Success at Gosforth, near Sellafield, in Cumbria, at the weekend saw Jack clinch the 12 stone championship to go with the titles in the 15 and 13 stone events he had won earlier in the year.

Next up is the 11 stone championships at Egremont, Cumbria, before the 14 stone equivalent at the final show of the year, in Alwinton.

Jack said: “It’s been the best start to the season I have had as I have won every championship I have entered so far.

“Last year was a slow one for me and I lost a few classes through silly mistakes, and that knocks your confidence a bit.

“But I’ve started well and my confidence is up so I’m targeting a clean sweep of world championships.

“Nobody has won more than four championships so I’m going for it, and it would be nice to be the first to do it.”

It will be a tough challenge for Jack, who works as a farrier, as he needs to lose 10lbs to meet the requirements for the 11 stone championship.

He will then have just three weeks to bulk back up to improve his chances in the hard-fought 14 stone class.

He said: “I should be able to lose the weight to make 11 stone. I have a job where you sweat a lot, and so I will get the weight off by running and sweating, and not eating a lot.

“The 14 stone championship will be a lot harder because I will be knackered and have lost a lot of energy after losing the weight.

“It is one of the main classes and a lot of lads enter, so I will have to gain weight after losing so much in three weeks.

“I will have punished my body by the time of the 14 stone championship, but it will all be worth it if I manage to win them all.”

In addition to success in the world championships, Jack has been dominating the Cumberland and Westmorland Association this year.

Last month, he became the first competitor to claim all senior championships within the association as he clinched the 15 stone championship at Skelton Show, in Cumbria.
