Here's What The "World’s Strongest Little Girl" Is Doing Now.

A New Plan

One night when Varya had gone downstairs to use the bathroom in the bar, two drunk guys began to harass her. Without thinking twice, Varya grabbed the two men and threw them down to the ground. For obvious reasons, they never bothered Varya again, but the incident did make her parents realize that they needed to make some changes in their lives.

A Move

The family decided it was best to move out of the small apartment above the bar, and they moved into the small stairwell of a gym. Together, Varya and her parents slept on a mattress at night and used the gym to train during the day. No matter what Varya was going through, she wouldn’t be taken down by any obstacles in her way. She continued to harness the amazing gift she was given, and by the time Varya was eight years old, she had accomplished something incredible!

Guinness World Record

At just eight years old and weighing 88 pounds, Varya set a Guinness World Record for being able to lift a whopping 220 pounds! This is the same weight as an average adult panda! That was pretty impressive for such a young child, but Varya would only continue to push past the boundaries that people set up for her.

Moving Up

One year after Varya earned the Guinness World record, her family was finally able to move into an apartment of their own. The new apartment not only gave Varya her very own room for the first time in her life, but it also had enough space in it for them to set up a small gym so Varya could train at home. Considering how much drive Varya had to succeed, it was obvious that there were big things in store for her.

Stronger Than Dad

When Varya was ten, she was already traveling to make international appearances blowing the minds of audiences by supporting the weight of both of her parents while she lay flat between two chairs. Just two years later, her father was making comments about Varya being stronger than he was. But just how strong Varya was, was far beyond anything that her father could imagine.
