8th Grade Girl is World-Record Powerlifter

Let me start by saying I suck at pretty much anything involving a ball or bat.  However, I do like the gym (which hasn’t been happening enough lately) and I like lifting weights.  I’m not one of the strongest guys in the gym, but I’m not one of the weakest, either.

So I was very intrigued by the story of a 13 year old girl who is the new Powerlifting world record-holder in her weight class.

Meet Abbey Watson. She’s 13 years old. She’s in 8th grade. She weighs 105 pounds. She also holds junior records in the bench press, squat, deadlifts and total weight. She set the world record for squats (in her division) at 143.3 pounds and deadlift at 176 pounds.

I’m impressed.  And can understand why the boys in her 8th grade class are a little intimidated when they found out how much she can lift. Check it out…
