A nine-year-old weightlifter has left the internet stunned after showing off her insane strength.

Indian weightlifter Arshia Goswami has accomplished incredible feats that many adults couldn't dream of doing.

The school girl, who boasts 752K followers on Instagram, showed off her unbelievable skills in a recent video.

In the jaw-dropping clip, Arshia deadlifted a back-breaking 165 pounds - which was three times her weight of 55 pounds.

Watch the video below:

The video shows the mighty youngster sporting a lift belt as she gears up, grabs hold of the bar with enormous weights loaded at either end, and then lifts it. She then dropped that bar down and walked off the mat like a boss.

“The youngest and strongest Indian,” the powerlifter penned in the caption to the impressive clip that has now amassed over 2 million likes.

Many people have taken to the comment section to gush about her remarkable skills, as one user reacted: "Weapon in making."

Another person said: "That’s incredible technique for that age. Most people don’t have that kind of technique until years in the game."

A third commented: "Amazed by your hardwork and dedication, you have put aside all the rumors and boundaries of tween age saying can do and can’t…keep going."

A fourth added: "Wow wow wow... We have a new superstar to win golds for India in the making."

Arshia's weightlifting journey began in 2021 when she set the record for her home country's youngest deadlifter by picking up nearly 100 pounds, according to the India Book of Records.

Since has also succeeded in several competitions and even got sponsored by MuscleBlaze and Jerai Fitness - two of India’s popular fitness brands.

Her dad, Avnish Goswami - who is also into fitness - revealed in a recent interview with Sportstar that his daughter's goal is to one day compete at the Olympics.

“At times, I feel we should show her talent a bit more," he told the publication. "But there is barely any competition at her age.

"So, we’ll continue working. By the time she is 12-13 and old enough to compete, she’ll have a proper base and will be better than most kids her age,” he said.

Her proud father also added that he doesn't know how his pride and joy "does it," questioning: "Is it genetic or maybe she’s got some rare gift?”
