This 77-Year-Old Grandma Will Embarrass You at Powerlifting Any Day

Who says age matters? Not New York’s 77-year-old grandma Willie Murphy.

Weighing in at just 105 pounds soaking wet, Murphy doesn’t look anything like a champion powerlifter.

But appearance notwithstanding, Murphy can deadlift 215 pounds, more than twice her weight, and dead curl 60 pounds. What’s amazing is she’s only been powerlifting for four years, and started with just 5 pounds.

Murphy won division titles in deadlifting, bench pressing, and power curling at the WNPF (World Natural Powerlifting Federation) World Championships, and won the competition’s 2014 Lifter of the Year award.

Obviously, nobody has to help her carry groceries, or lift her grandkids, or even push her car out of the snow.

As Murphy says: “It’s about life… ‘L’, ‘I’, ‘F’, ‘E’… life!”

Having had many eclectic experiences and expressing interest in so many varied things in life has suited my role as Editor-in-Chief of Vision Times. Being trained in the sciences, I worked in the medical field. Scuba diving was a passion, being part owner of a scuba shop, and I enjoyed diving around the world. Raising reptiles of all sorts, including poisonous snakes, was also one of my hobbies when living in the U.S. After moving to Australia in the 80s, I became an avid organic grower of tropical fruits and vegetables, which my wife and I partake of year-round, as well as many of our friends. My newest endeavor has been to become a “bikie” — an eBikie, which I do every day not only to get exercise, but also to have a break from slaving over my computer most of the day. Obviously, China is also a passion, which is something VT specializes in, so I feel very fortunate to have a role here at Vision Times.
