CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii Sports) - Even though Naomi Kutin is 10-years-old and weighs slightly less than 97 pounds, she's anything but "little." Sunday Kutin broke the world record for raw squatting when he lifted 215 pounds, more than twice her body weight. The previous record for the 97 pound division was 209 pounds broken by a 44 year old European woman last summer.

Besides the big squat, she made two prs in the bench (77 and 82) and made a huge pr 209 pull. She had an outstanding day and a great time.

Thanks for the info. I tell you what the more I think about this the more impressed I am. This is one of the more impressive things I have seen on here for quite some time. 10 years old and over double bodyweight squat and pull! That is really really unreal and very impressive. I had to show my 13 year old son who has started lifting. Very motivated young lady. Ken Ufford

aside from her strength, the ability she has to grind out weights is unreal. there are females I have trained 2+ yrs that lack that ability.

Better video is on the RUM day 2 squats. The squat record is at 22:00 on the video. It is definitely unquestionable that it is a good lift.

Awesome job! My daughter Anna has been training since age 11 and will turn 19 in April, she's a freshman at Auburn University and is a thrower for the track team. Work hard every day and you'll see the results. Congrats again!Proudly Sponsored By; WestCartBarBell UnBreakAbleGear ReActiveTrainingSystems BodysBestSuppleMents;Team McCloskey

I was not a big fan of young people under 18 or so maxing out. But I was not more than 5 yards away from Naomi and saw a cute and petite ten year old girl approach the platform, and get under the bar on her first attempt and suddenly she transformed herself into a gritty determined powerlifter, take off the weight back off and await the judges signal to squat and I was looking at a transformed face that was going to complete this attempt successfully. Her next squat attempt was a record but i really became a believer on her last deadlift. This was a gritty truly max effort and i now have to believe that the ability to fight failure with determination drawing on all your physical and mental ability must set up a young person with a "true grit" that few of her peers have experienced.

We tend to give a higher priority to "preventing failure" than encouraging success and this eliminates toughness...
