Cut the excuses

Edith Murwe-Traina, who lifts weights ranging from 40 to 150 pounds, is shaking up the competitive powerlifting circuit and proving to the world that age is not an excuse to be inactive. She is 100!

"While I was watching those ladies doing their thing, I thought I just as well should pick up a few bars, and I did."

"Going on a regular basis, I found that I was enjoying it, and I was challenging myself to get a little bit better and a little bit better. Before long, I was part of the team."
