The She’s a Beast newsletter pointed me to this story about a Redmond woman who, at the age of 94, is setting powerlifitng records:
At 90, she could deadlift 93 pounds clean off the mat. That’s in the record books. And this weekend in Reno, Nevada, she’s going for another world record — lifting 104 pounds at age 94.
…This extraordinary ability came late in life. Kuehn said she never worked with weights, played sports or even did much exercise until she was in her 60s.
“Oh heavens no,” she said. “Never. But I did like to sew.”
