An 82-year-old female powerlifter broke her foot off in a 28-year-old man’s rear end after he tried to break into her abode in Rochester, New York.
“I’m alone and I’m old, but guess what – I’m tough,” Willie Murphy, a routine weightlifter, expressed to local news station reporters. She furthered: “He picked the wrong house to break into.”
Murphy stated the young male banged on her door, shouting he was ill and to let him in. Murphy phoned emergency responders however failed to let him inside. Then, she explained, he broke the door down. She snatched up the closest object, a metal-legged table, and “went to working on him”, she claimed. “Guess what – the table broke.”
The 82-year-old said she hopped on the intruder, dumped shampoo on his face and stuck him with a broom. She even attempted to drag him out of the home, but he was too large. “I’m hitting him, hitting him, hitting him with the broom,” she added. By the time emergency workers and police showed up, she said, “I had really did a number on that man … I think he was happy when he went in the ambulance.”
Murphy, who works out just about every day at the YMCA near her home, suggested she can deadlift 225lb. Deadlifting is a weight training exercise in which a bar or loaded barbell is raised off the floor to the level of the hips, torso transversely to the floor, prior to being sat back on the ground. Along with bench press and the squat, it is one of the three powerlifting exercises.
