A 7-year-old girl impressed everyone after she lifted 80kgs in a competition. That’s about twice her body weight! Whoa. Can you lift that much?
Impressive Girl Lifts 80kgs
An impressive 7-year-old girl from Ottawa, Canada named Rory van Ulft can lift about twice her own body weight! What makes this even more impressive is that she is doing it at such a young age.
It turned out that this young lady began her weight training back when she was still 5 years old when she was scouted at her gymnastics class. The young girl has been training so hard since then, gradually being able to lift heavier weights.
At just 4 feet tall, this young girl was named as the best pound-for-pound under-11s lifter in the US and recognized as the youngest US youth national champion in history. She was also crowned as the USA weightlifting under-11 and under-13s Youth National Champion in the 30kg weight class.
A lot of grown ups can’t even lift 80kgs, yet this kid makes it appear so simple.
“I like getting stronger. Being stronger lets me do more and get better at everything I try. I don’t think about what came before, or what will come after. I don’t think about anything. I just clear my mind and do it,” Rory said.
“I like when I make a new weight that I’ve never done before. I feel proud of myself.”
A lot of people have also taken notice of Rory’s tattoos, yet the tattoo is actually fake and is just something she puts on to make her feel brave.
Aside from lifting 80kgs, Rory can also snatch 32kg, do clean and jerk 42kg, and squat 61kg. Impressive kid!
How Much Weight Can People Usually Lift?
Do you work out and do lifts? How much can you lift?
While the weight that a person is able to lift depends on a lot of factors, this is usually around 100% of their body weight for women and about 133% of their body weight for men. However, this is usually only possible with regular training or during rare moments of adrenaline-rush in emergency situations.
