Maryana Naumova - a new World Record + few more things
From our friend: Andrey Loginov
Maryana Naumova participated with a guest performance at the “Worldlifting” meet (Moscow, 19 December 2010): The teenage girl broke her own unequipped bench press world record (56 kg, 123.5 lb) twice on her second and third attempts. In the second attempt she pressed 57.5kg (127 lb) and in the thrid attempt she pressed 60 kg (132.3 lb), thus setting a new teenage world record (girls, age less than 14 years).
Maryana is training for the Russian National IPA championship which will take place in February 2011 in Ekaterinburg. She also received an invitation to the «Eurolifting-2011» (May, 2011) from one of the organizers, a well-known Russian bench presser Vladimir Kravtsov. Maryana is planning to break her own world record once again.
In November 2010 Maryana participated in the sports expo «SportIndustry-2010» in Kiev, Ukraine.
One of the guests of honor of the expo, IFBB professional Chris Cormier, was astonished by the strength of Maryana (55kg, 121.3 lb successful bench press attempt). “Maryana, you are very strong, very impressive” – that’s the autograph he gave to Maryana.
In the gym Maryana pressed 50kgx12, 57.5x4. For negatives she does 75kg.
Maryana is a school girl from Moscow suburbs. She is a sporty girl competing in aerobics and powerlifting, and at the same time she gets high grades in school. She is working out twice a week, using a bench press training program from Alexander Grachev. She is taking SAN creatine and SAN protein. She is planning to write a book for kids about powerlifting training. Her dream is to get to the Guinness World Records book and to participate in Arnold Classic.
