FIFE, Wash. -- A Washington powerlifter who once made a name for herself on the national stage is now making headlines for another reason.
Ali McWeeny of Ellensburg was once a force to be reckoned with in the world of weighlifting, but that all changed three years ago when she lost her left leg in a boating accident.
Doctors said she would never lift weights again, but McWeeny had other ideas. She's now competing again, and her inspirational story was enough to bring her former coach out of retirement.

McWeeny is a Central Washington University alumna.
