Nine-year-old Weightlifting

Nine years, 33 kg

I rarely allow youth athletes to go this heavy, especially kids this young. Kendra is an exceptionally gifted athlete with more than proficient technique who has already dedicated a lot of time to the sport. She turns 10 next week and wanted to see what she could lift while still a nine-year-old. I think she earned the right to do so by performing literally thousands of near perfect reps this year at submaximal weights.
