Steadfast Athlete and weightlifting prodigy Arshia Goswami is just 6-years-old but has already entered the India Book of records 2022 as the country’s “youngest deadlifter”. The India Book of Records is recognised by the Government of India. Arshia lifted 45 kg weight like a seasoned lifter at the age of 6 years, 11 months, and 27 days, as confirmed on December 28, 2021.
The petite youngster, who is only 4-feet tall as of now and weighs 22 kgs, has been lifting heavy weights for more than a year. Last year, when she joined Steadfast Nutrition as an athlete, she became the youngest sponsored athlete in the country. She trains for more than four hours in a day. She likes to get strong and believes in achieving feats by developing strength. The major factor behind Arshia’s excellence in sports is the encouragement she receives from her parents.
