Xavier Tiffany | Sport

Mālo Lelei, Bula Vinaka!

My name is Xavier Tiffany.

I was raised in a typical New Zealand sporting family, surrounded by Touch, Sevens and Rugby. I grew up playing all 3 sport socially, at school and at both national and international levels. I transferred over to Olympic Weightlifting half way through my last year at high school after a bad concussion forced me to have some time of sport. During this time off I decided that I would break the classic Kiwi mold of being a rugby player and pursue a career in Olympic Weightlifting.

In the almost 3 years I have spent in sport, it has taught me so much and I have grown so much, spiritually mentally, physically and emotionally. I have become a Xavier Tiffany I never knew was possible. I have meet so many people and learnt so much things in the time I have lifted that I will continue to apply to my life now and after weightlifting. Weightlifting is a individual sport but I could never do this alone.

I am Fijian, Tongan and Kiwi. I proudly identify and represent my heritage and culture at every chance possible. All throughout high school I had the opportunity to be involved in Pasifika groups, performances, celebrations, sport days and trips. It’s what makes me, me and I’ll always stand true to it.

All my Glory goes to God and I am grateful for all He has done for me and how far He has brought me in such a short time. I’m excited for what He has in plan for me as a weightlifter and also as a person. Galatians 2:20. All in Jesus name

Mālo Aupito.
