History of women in weightlifting

I’ve been Googling to find the name of a woman I saw on either Johnny Carson or David Letterman sometime between 1988 and 1994. She was at least 60 years old and she lifted a huge barbell and gave a huge grin. I think she did a deadlift, but all I really remember is her proud grin.

I still haven’t found her, but I found this short but interesting piece on the first women’s powerlifting meet.
