A girl as young as seven can become stronger than many adults. Rory van Ulft is a 7-year-old gymnast who is breaking records in weightlifting.
The youngest is originally from Canada and has just become the United States Under-11 and Youngest Under-13 Junior National Champion of history after two years dedicating himself to this sport.
The little girl started doing gymnastics, but learned that you could get injured doing certain things if you weren’t strong enough. So he began lifting weights in various styles, under the careful supervision of a coach, gradually building his strength to an impressive level.
Currently, the Canadian can lift 32 kg, clean and pull 42 kg, as well as Squat 61kg and Deadlift 80kg with an Olympic Bar for women.
“Based on her current Sinclair total, Rory is not only the strongest seven-year-old in the world, but she’s also probably the strongest seven-year-old girl or boy who ever lived, for whom there are verifiable competition results, “explained the girl’s father, Cavan van Ulft.
“In terms of Rory’s relative strength compared to all the national champions in the lowest weight and developmental age categories for girls, which vary from country to country, currently there is no one who competes better“Cavan added.
