This 97-year-old grandma weightlifter is proof you should never give up

“Kicking and screaming” is how Edith Traina describes the first time she stepped into a gym. That was six years ago, but now the inspiring 97-year-old grandmother has a powerlifting competition named after her, BayNews 9 reports. Dozens of lifters, some as young as 13 and some as old as Traina, met to compete at the Edith Traina Inspirational Open in Tampa, Fla., on Saturday.
