A Gallery of Russia’s Strongest Girl Varya Akulova

Varya Akulova

Ladies and gentlemen, may I present Varya Akulova.  She is considered to be the world’s strongest girl.  And when she was 13, I’d have to say that statement is pretty accurate.   Then,  Varya weighed 40kg and was able to lift 350kg.  While I have absolutely no clue how to convert those metrics,  seeing that she can lift almost 9 times her body weight is quite significant.

I’m not quite sure what compels a 6-year-old to be a freak of nature but I guess someone had to be the strongest kid in the neighborhood. By the way, apparently this girl was able to lift 220 lbs at the age of four.  While I’d like to see proof of this, just hearing it leads me to believe that at her current age of 13, most of her female “parts” are probably bigger than my male parts.

Now she’s 17 but most of these photos are of her younger days.  They are both amazing and disturbing

    I don’t see how these photos are disturbing. People do not freak out when they see a child of 8 training for football (soccer), tennis, gymnastics, ice-skating, track etc. But when it comes to lifting weights suddenly people get so out of joint. Why is that? Why is it that weight lifting heavy weights is seen as so extreme (even for adults)? The benefits of it are incredible and it’s reputation has been tarnished by those on the more extreme ends of things (i.e – those taking a cocktail of drugs and performing exercises badly so they get injured).

    Admittedly, it’s unusual to see a young girl lifting so much weight (in fact, it’s unusual to see a fully grown woman lifting heavy) but it’s not disturbing. If they had the girl hooked up on ‘roids etc then it would be but given she’s only 40kg and her face is very soft she is clearly drug-free. I believe if one wants to be disturbed about a young girl doing this sport then they should also feel the same when they see young children being trained to be pro athletes for other sports. I get the impression folks will still continue having their illogical knee-jerk reaction though instead.
