Late Friday night Shawna Mendelson of the Blue Collar Barbell Gym in Bohemia and 14 time World Champion powerlifter called Lisa and convinced her to compete at the 2013 International Powerlifters Association (IPA) Long Island Fall Fest in Westbury, NY. Lisa reluctantly agreed to compete. At 47 years old and weighing in at 116 lbs. Lisa was easily the oldest and smallest competitor, but if you know Lisa you understand that those factors mean nothing to her. Lisa was nervous and chose her weights very conservatively. When the competition came to a close we discovered that Lisa won the overall for the women! She’s still in shock as I type this. Upon inspection of the IPA website I discovered that, unless it needs to be updated, Lisa may be the world champ for women in her age group. She doesn’t know yet, by the way, but I promise to tell her later.
