8- Varvara Akulova
Ukrainian Varvara Akulova was born to circus performers and has pride of place in the Guinness Book of World Records. She could very well be the strongest girl in the world. She started lifting weights when she was just 4 and had set a Guinness world record by the time she was 10 when she lifted 220lbs. She was back in the books four years later; smashing her own record by lifting an Painfully Ordinary 660lb. The interesting thing is that Varvara lacks the visible muscle mass you’d see with someone as strong as her. Experts believe that Varvara could have special genetics passed down by relatives who were also incredibly strong.
