81-year-old powerlifting grandma from Missouri sets world record


ST. LOUIS – A powerlifting grandma from St. Louis has no plans to slow down.

Since 2016, 81-year-old Shirley Webb has set three national records and a powerlifting world record.

Webb dead-lifted 265 pounds, and recently, at a global competition, she beat a competitor 10 years younger than her.

Webb accomplished this in just three years after she first joined a gym. Now, with 17 medals and counting, she’s redefining her “golden years.”
