I started lifting when Dr. Wagman introduced me to strength sports when I was 46 years old, as a student taking his upper division Exercise Science class at the Univ of CO. Before that I did not know how to squat and never heard of a deadlift let alone all the amazing feats of strength out there. I thought that I was too old to take on a sport let alone to seriously compete in one.  Thanks to him, I have never been injured.

These are the meets I hope to compete in the women's 55-59 age division.

Hardly anything is more rewarding than seeing someone work hard, train hard, and have it all come together, especially at a world championship. You absolutely dominated in every respect...attempts, technique, weights lifted, which all combines to you winning the overall women's world title. I would have to thank you, though, too, for applying science, especially when it contradicts just about everything you see out there.

Glad you're excited about the meet. I'm impressed by you adhering to science, no matter how much it diverges from how other people train. That's why your PR's are usually American records and that's why you're ageless.
