Willie Murphy, A 77-Year Old Grandmother won the power curl, deadlift and bench press competition in her divisions at the World Natural Powerlifting Federation World Championships where she was also given the WNPF 2014 Lifter of the Year Award.
According to her Interview with Democrat and Chronicle, Murphy states she is completely self-taught, because she can’t afford to have a personal trainer
“Personal training is expensive, Who has $39 an hour? None of these steroids for me. They see I’m old and I’m not being pushed around in a wheelchair,” she said with a laugh. “I can shovel my own snow. And I can push my car if it gets stuck in the snow… I’m almost 80 years old and I am still living life.”
Murphy is also capable of pulling off one-handed push ups, pull-ups, and fingertip pushups.
She still trains 3 times a week at the Maplewood YMCA.
