With her record, Milla Star Bizzotto would already be a fantastic athlete as an adult. But she's only 9 years old. That hasn't stopped her from mastering the toughest competitions of strength and stamina. Seriously, check out her Instagram feed and be wowed at what this young girl can do.
Her father, Christian, is the owner of a gym and a serious competitor himself. Milla grew up watching him complete obstacle courses. Recently, she joined him in the BattleFrog 24-hour obstacle course race. She was the youngest participant. In fact, she as the only one under the age of 18.
Do you think that a 9-year old doesn't have what it takes to keep running through an obstacle course deisgned for top-tier adult athletes for a full day? You'd be wrong. The Miami Herald reports:
She ran, jumped, climbed, crawled and swam through an eight-kilometer course (roughly five miles) with approximately 25 obstacles. She completed six full laps (about 30 miles) and said the hardest obstacle was the “Platinum Rig,” where athletes swing between ropes, rings and monkey bars without touching the ground. In between, she slept between 2 and 6 a.m.
“I’m so proud of her,” Christian said. “She was so amazing the entire race. She is really so relentless and refuses to quit.” [...]
“She literally murdered it,” Christian said. “I was so convinced the race was going to crush her. I wanted to prove to her that it’s tougher than she thought. But when we finished it, all she wanted to do was another lap.”
