Mary Fusco joined Kaya on Travels Through a Kingdom to tell her amazing story.
Mary took up powerlifting in January of this year.
She wanted to do something new, and after doing cardio based workouts and walks, she decided powerlifting was for her.
When she approached a gym, she said her goal was to compete.
Little did Mary realise, she would win a bronze medal 10 months later at the World Championships in Canada!
With the support of a life-long family friend, Mary's dreams came through when she could travel to compete.
Her family watched her from home and sent her endless amount of love and support.
Mary would encourage anyone, man or woman, no matter what age, to just face to fear and do it.
