ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - The story of an East Alton Illinois woman continues to spread around the world.
Two years ago, 78-year-old Shirley Webb, could barely make it up the stairs without grabbing the railing and catching her breath. Now this Illinois grandma is a record-setting weightlifter for her age. She wows people by dead-lifting 225 pounds, three times in a row.
Webb is now shooting for a personal-best 260-pound dead-lift.
