Montel Tivoli has endured the rigors of weightlifting from a very early age and has excelled significantly in this sport. Not only is he a CommonWealth Games medalist, he has also etched his name in history as the only Māori to have performed the jerk over 200kg. Along with his wealth of mātauranga and experience, he has also committed his efforts to sharing his knowledge with other whānau through his I-LOV-IT programme. Amongst what has already been achieved, Montel also dedicated time to learning Te Reo Māori and is now a fluent speaker of the language. This journey has been pivotal in his life as he continues on this path of improving hauora through weightlifting.
