Watch: Pensioner, 86, breaks world weightlifting record

Britain’s strongest grandad has broken the world weightlifting record AGED 86. Pumped-up Brian Winslow has been bodybuilding for more than 60 years and still trains six days a week in his home gym. He has now broken the British and world record for deadlifting in his age group after he lifted 75kg (165lb) on his first attempt at an international weightlifting contest. The superfit pensioner - who weighs 2st less than the barbell he was lifting - then smashed his own record when he managed 77.5kg (171lb) on his second lift. He failed to hold onto his third attempt at 78kg (172lb) but his previous lifts were enough to secure him a place in the record books. Brian was competing in the deadlift at the 2023 British Drug Free Powerlifting Association (BDFPA) championships in Horncastle, Lincs., last Saturday (18/3).
