Black Woman: Edith Connor, Oldest Female Bodybuilder at 77 Breaks Guinness Record
Edith Wilma Connor, 77, has earned the title of the “World’s Oldest Female Bodybuilder” and continues to pump iron to this day.
Though Connor, from Denver, Colorado, only recently began bodybuilding at a competitive level, it was in her 60s that she entered the Grand Masters in Las Vegas and won first place, Reuters reported.
“It was something I could do by myself, for myself. It was a tension releaser. I sit at a computer all day, so it was one way for me to take it out on the weights instead of the employees.”
