Fairlawn, NJ – While most 10-year-old girls are playing with dolls, for 10-year-old Naomi Kutin, she’s setting world records for weightlifting.
Kutin currently holds the record for squat lifts at a whopping 215 pounds, a record in the under-97 pound weight class, beating out women in their 40s.
“It was in my mind to get that record for a really long time and I was training especially hard for that record,” says Kutin.
She says she started training when she was 8 years old and that her inspiration to get into the sport was her father.
Kutin has become such a force at weightlifting tournaments that they moved tournaments from Saturday to Sunday to accommodate her, since she and her family are Orthodox Jews.
