WORLD’S strongest girl who could flip her 17st dad while wrestling is now unrecognisable.

Once dubbed “Girl Hercules”, her parents first noticed their daughter’s unusual strength when she was just a toddler and she began competing in and winning power-lifting competitions at the age of seven.

When she turned 10, she managed to flip her 17-and-a-half stone father Uri while wrestling.

Despite her astonishing strength, Varya was only eating noodles and water as that was all the family could afford at the time. Her muscles were barely visible and at 5ft tall, she weighed just over eight stone.

Fast forward ten years, she looks almost unrecognisable now.

Going from strength to strength, she has been trained in acrobatics, boxing, kick boxing, wrestling and circus juggling and shows no sign of slowing down.

In one picture, Varya wears a black dress and she seems less slimmer but still gives no obvious indication of her true strength.

She regularly performs in the circus, where she is seen lifting her colleague on her shoulders with ease.

Varya’s diet has also improved over the years. She now eats one egg, a glass of juice and bread for breakfast, bread and a cup of tea for lunch and for dinner she often tucks into macoroni noodles and occasionally some meat. She also drinks one glass of milk a day for calcium.

Her father Uri, who says that by the age of 12 his daughter was stronger than him, thinks his side of the family have a rare strength gene that few others have.

Varya’s great-grandfather managed the astonishing feat of carrying 2,600lbs (1,200kg) on his back in 1910 and her mother Larisa is also stronger than most women.

She sets her many world records with relative ease as her father only lets her show about 75 per cent of her maximum strength for health and safety reasons.

But despite her amazing success, Varya wishes she was bigger.

She said: “I do not take steroids, I only take multi vitamins. I wish I could be big, really big: 190 cm tall and weigh more than 100 kg, like my dad.”

On top of her physical strength, she is also a top student and learned to read aged just three.

Varya isn’t the only bodybuilding youngster to look unrecognisable years after becoming well known.

Tristyn Lee became famous when followers began noticing his gladiator-like physique in videos the teenager uploaded online.

In an Instagram post captioned “Working out saved my life,” Tristyn shares a short clip comparing his 15-year-old self to the bodybuilding machine he is today.

He follows a strict dieting routine and says he goes to the gym at least twice a day.

The young bodybuilder claims his shredding physique comes from not eating sugar for three years and following a high-protein keto diet without any cheat meals.
