Russian Girl Raises Bar of 70 kilos for Guinness Book
Maryana Naumova

12-year-old schoolgirl Maryana Naumova soon will find herself in the Guinness Book of Records as she has become the first girl under 15 years to bench press an incredible 70 kilograms.

      Maryana, who weights only 48 kilos, has already become a sensation around the Russian powerlifting scene. It is very hard to guess that someone so slight in build would be able to lift one-and-a-half times her own bodyweight.

      “There’s no secret behind my success. My father trains me, which I really like. The coaches are really good and some of the best around. They have trained a number of champions. I’m one of them and I think they play a big part in my development,” Maryana said.

      Maryana Naumova has almost a dozen world records in a sport that she took up completely by accident.

      “I have been bench pressing since I was ten,” Maryana Naumova said. “I went with my dad to a competition and during a break I decided to try and lift the bar. It weighs 20 kilos and I managed to lift it four times. An expert saw this and said I should train as this is a rare feat.”

Outside the sports arena, Maryana leads a relatively normally life. She attends school, though says the boys do pick on her, mainly out of jealousy, though she takes all this in her stride.

      Next year Maryana is going to try to establish a new record, benching press in excess of 80 kilos.
