Meet Brynn, the 10-y/o champion weightlifter aiming to inspire other girls her age

United States, Baton Rouge
July 31, 2020 at 18:52 GMT -00:00 · Published

Brynn Catalano is a 10-year-old weightlifter and Crossfit athlete from Louisiana, well known in the fitness world for her successes so far in the field of weightlifting. She was to be found working out with her dad, Chase Catalano, who is also her main coach in Baton Rouge on Wednesday.

She is believed to be one of the strongest 10-year-old girls in the country. In 2019 she won first place in the 11-and-under category at the USA Youth Weightlifting National Championships, as well as second place for the 13-and-under category in the same year, at the age of nine.

She discovered her passion when she was only six-years-old, as her father, who owned a fitness studio, introduced her to the world of weightlifting while coaching other adult athletes himself. Ever since, Brynn has been working out hard with her dad and can be found up to four times a week pumping iron, exercising for hours on end as she strives for success. For the next big one, Brynn will be travelling to Atlanta, Georgia, to compete in the 2020 USA Nationals.

"I like to work on weightlifting because it makes me healthier, stronger and it also inspires other girls," says the little champion, who finds a big motivation in empowering others her age to do the same. "I want to inspire other girls because I want to make my generation bigger," she added.
