Meet Amanda Harris (AKA Barbie Barbell). At 21, 5’4” and 125lbs, she is a 17 time World Champion Powerlifter. Amanda has broken 468 state, national, and world records over the last 12 years with 95 competitions, and won all 95 meets.

...
My biggest and best lifts have been 420lbs. in the squat, 265lbs. with my bench-press and 365lbs. with the deadlift. Little girls are not supposed to be able to do things like that.
...
I was diagnosed with acute scoliosis at the age of eight.

    The training advice here is to just train...eat.. train.

    As to the woman.. Bev Francis did it better.

    Did what better? Overcoming a serious medical condition by including a regime of heavy lifting? Don't think that's really something to be competitive about..lol.

    Wow - just wow!

    " I was diagnosed with acute scoliosis at the age of eight. The doctors wanted to place me into a Halo brace, which is major surgery where the doctors drill bolts into the skull and insert steel rods down the length of the spine, and finish it off with a corset looking device to keep me from twisting. I was also born with cleft feet and had to wear leg braces for the first 2 years of my life just so that I could learn to walk properly."
