Record Lift By 10-year-old American

March 24, 2012 by staff 

Record Lift By 10-year-old American, In fact, one new power lifting world record was even set by a Fairlawn, N.J., native. There’s just one trick: She’s only 10 years old. Yes, you read that correctly: A 10-year-old girl in New Jersey is now the world-record holder for the raw squat event.

According to Off the Bench and a handful of other sources, young Naomi Kutin set a world record for the 97-pound division in the raw squat event by lifting an astounding 215 pounds at the RAW Unity weightlifting championships in Texas.

Kutin’s incredible lift broke the existing 97-pound division mark of 209 pounds, which was held by — wait for it — a 44-year-old European. That’s right: the 4-foot-8 Kutin just lifted six more pounds than a woman who does this all the time and has 34 years of seniority on her.

So, how did a fifth-grader possibly get wrapped into the competitive world of international powerlifting? Here’s how Kutin explained her entrance to the sport to Corpus Christi TV station KIII in late January.

“When I was younger, my friends would be doing a lot of things that I couldn’t do, and I wanted to do something extraordinary,” an excited Kutin said. “I wanted to break a record of some sort and I just really wanted to get this record.”

Fair enough, even if the difference between trying out a new sport and setting a new record before reaching middle school is pretty enormous.
