You might think children aren't interested in weightlifting, strength and gyms, but it turns out that's not the case.

A 10-year-old girl is already deadlifting weights of up to 65 kilograms and it is thought she could one day be the world's strongest woman, according to Sputnik.

The girl, named Indra, lives in Sweden and trains with her dad Daniel Lundqvist, who is also a powerlifter as well as a physiotherapist.

Indra told STV that she wants to become the "strongest in the world", adding: "I think it's fun, but sometimes my friends can get a bit sour when I get all this attention because I'm strong."

Lundqvist has been supervising his daughter's weightlifting training since she was just seven years old.

The father explained: "It's Indra who is keen on the heavier stuff while I hold her back. Sometimes we do raise it a bit heavier, but never put on a weight she cannot handle."

Her current record for lifting in a squat position is 55 kilograms and she can bench press 30 kilograms.

Indra's dad regularly posts photos and videos of his daughter weightlifting on Instagram and the account has more than 4,600 followers.
