97-year-old grandmother from Florida raises the bar in the 60 kg. this is not the limit

In its 100-year anniversary of the American wants to lift 90 kg.

The pensioner from Florida Edith of Thrain found an unusual hobby. She doesn’t knit, do not put the flowers and bakes the cakes — an energetic Granny does powerlifting. And, incidentally, very successful in this.

It all started six years ago, when a girlfriend dragged you move the gym to a bit of “improve your health”.

First, the pensioner resisted, but then became involved and now regularly engaged in the gym three days a week.

But simple exercises of Thrain don’t stop here and decided to hit new records. In February she took part in competitions Polk County Senior Games, where he won two gold medals in the age group 95-99 years. Energetic grandma sting of the breast is 27 pounds and performed a deadlift with a barbell weight of 58.9 kg.

In fairness it should be noted that Edith was the only participant in his age category, but she wants his example to inspire other pensioners to do weightlifting and, consequently, to increase competition.
