What happened when Leader reporter Lee met granny Jean during her training for the World Masters Games?

Jean shows Lee that age is only a number by showing off her impressive feats of strength.

The Mearns grandmother defended her weightlifting title and also took the gold medal at the World Masters Games in Turin last weekend.

She lifted with 10 other competitors, totalling 105kg to beat an Australian – her main rival - into silver medal position with an Italian taking bronze.

Jean trains three times a week at Newlife Fitness Club in Laurencekirk, owned by Gary and Sally Fairweather.
