This Woman Is Officially the World's Oldest Powerlifter

Edith Murway-Traina is... kind of amazing.

Murway-Traina first joined her gym when she was a spry 91, and says she recalls going in “kicking and screaming.” Obviously she loves it now, celebrating her August 8 birthday by entering the Guinness World Records!

"Lifting weights upwards of 40-150 pounds, Edith is smashing the competitive powerlifting circuit, dazzling viewers and judges alike with her graceful lifts," the Guinness World Records reads.
