"Seventy-eight is just a number and people get fixate in their brain about the age 78, you’re supposed to be something, but it’s not a definition."

If you set your mind to it, you can accomplish anything and that is what 78-year-old Linda Patterson did. The Albuquerque grandma who's had knee surgeries and a lack of mobility following a car accident participated in her first powerlifting competition recently.

I’ve got a lot to work on," Patterson said. She, along with her trainer Derrick Williams, drove to Roswell Saturday for the National Athlete Strength Association Powerlifting Summer Nationals. "The number one priority for me in the competition was to make sure she got home safe without injuries and we absolutely achieve that goal," Williams said.

Once she puts her hands on the cold steel it’s a wrap," Williams said. Patterson went seven for nine on her lifts and set four National Athlete Strength Association National records.
