At years-old, she was the only competitor in her age division. But she still had a goal. Deadlift pounds. Taking up powerlifting as a senior citizen, as Murphy did, is unusual. The intensity of her achievements — a pound deadlift was her personal best going into the March 24 championships — have earned her international attention. She takes blood pressure medicine, but the WNPF says that is okay. Before the deadlift part of the competition, Murphy had set two state records by bench pressing pounds and completing 24 bench reps.
A man breaks-in the house of a bodybuilder
Willie also told us about the history of the West Bank scene after the Bar closed in Forever in my heart. Woke up to sad news today. My old friend Willie Murphy passed away.

In 24 years of directing competitions sanctioned by the World Natural Powerlifting Federation, Ron DeAmicis has never met another powerlifter like year-old Willie Murphy. And as far as her personality, there's no one that can beat Willie. Murphy is from Rochester, New York, and started competitively powerlifting about 10 years ago. Her reason?
The year old grandmother knocked down a home intruder who tried to break into her Rochester home in New York. The attempt to break-in proved to be a wrong decision for the intruder who was severely beaten by Will Murphy, an award-winning bodybuilder. She said that the incident happened on the night of November 21, when she was getting ready for her. Suddenly she heard someone banging on the door and requesting an ambulance. It was late at night and Murphy called the police instead of opening the door. After a while, the man lost his anger and broke the door. Murphy who is an award-winning bodybuilder said that it was dark and she was alone at home. She used various household items to attack him and kept beating him. The year-old woman used the metal legs of the table to beat, she said.
