World's Strongest Girl Grew Up
In 2004, when she was 12, Varya lifted a total of 350 kg in snatch and clean and jerk. Her own weight was only 40 kg. The girl lifted a 100 kg barbell for the first time at the age of three. She was listed twice in the World Guinness Records as the strongest girl on the planet.
Varya Akulova is 20 now and she continues to set records in weightlifting. Her next goal is a golden Olympic Medal and the title of the World’s Strongest Woman.
