Edith Wilma Connor,a 77-year-old grandmother, is the “World’s Oldest Female Bodybuilder” according to a published article by the Guinness World Records last May 10, 2012. The oldest female bodybuilder reportedly has three sons, seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

At the age of 60, Connor reportedly won first place during the Grand Masters competition in Las Vegas.

After winning the Grand Masters competition, Connor became active on weights and that enable her to be a personal trainer for mature individual.

In a recent interview with Reuters, Connor explained that bodybuilding “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.”

According to Connor, winning the Guinness World Record title made her bodybuilding activity “a lot of fun and I relish the attention [my] unusual hobby-age combination attracts.”
