Supergirl - 80-Pound Recordbreaking Powerlifter - Clip

Clip: Season 19 Episode 3 | 2m 15s

Go, go Supergirl! In this clip from the Independent Lens film Supergirl, we see how Naomi Kutin -- starting at age 8 -- surprised her parents with her ability to powerlift, despite her tiny 80-pound frame. At first people thought, "oh she's just some kid," but then she started breaking American records, beating women in their 30s and 40s, and was off to the races.
