Winifred Pristell is the strongest 74-year-old women in the world. She holds state, national and world records for deadlifting and has won so many medals that she’s lost count of her haul. The powerlifter from Washington, USA, began winning competitions aged 67. The septuagenarian spoke to Rosette Royale of Real Change about her extraordinary achievements and her family, who lovingly call her ‘Heavy Metal’. (2387 Words) - By Rosette Royale
