Meanwhile in Azerbaijan …
20 year old Boyanka Kostova (58kg) squats 200kg.
Update: Translation from Borislav
Trainer: It worked this second time. The last time I helped you. This barbell will stay in history. A woman in the world, 60 kg, there is no such thing. This barbell will stay in history, 200 kg. If there is such a woman in the world… (she unloads the weights) You unload it too fast. You must (I can’t hear here) this barbell!
Boyanka: Oh, come on…
Remember that she is the 2012 European Champion [video] and was 5th in the London Olympics.
In this interview she mentions that, after some misunderstandings between her personal trainer and Zlatan Vanev (AZE head coach) and some back and forth between Bulgaria & Azerbaijan, she now decided to stay in Azerbaijan and prepare for the 2016 Olympics there.
She also said she is not going to be at Europeans this year as the focus is on Worlds.
Thanks to Phil for submitting.

Update: This comment by Pendlay forum user Judas puts things in perspective.
That squat beats the 57kg, 63kg, 72kg and 84kg IPF classic records, and is only 15kg off the SWH one. It beats the 57kg class record by 123lbs.
That squat beats ALL the Raw Unity raw records (untested), most by a mile. April Mathis has put up a bigger number, but i’ve seen her lift and you cannot call what she does a ‘squat’… its a different exercise altogether.
That squat beats EVERY female raw squat ever done in the WPC (biggest multi-ply fed, untested), regardless ov weight class.
That squat also beats all the WPC raw MENS squat records up to 60kg.
Now… lets get right stupid here…
That squat also beats EVERY raw female squat listed on PL Watches ‘all-time’ records. So basically the best in history from every fed ever known to man. That… is a big fucking deal. Every single one… from 44kg all the up to 75, 82.5 and 90kg. Again, Mathis (SHW) doesn’t count. Makes me wonder what the #2 SHW squatted… IT might be less too…
whats happening with her partner Ivan Stoitsov?
Ivan Stoitsov is back in Bulgaria if i am not wrong. Rumors have it that Ivan and Zlatan Vanev can’t get along with eachother. And Boyanka Kostova cant/ won’t go back to Bulgaria, as AZE demand the same amount of money back form Bulgaria as when they bought her.
At her bodyweight that’s unreal
Ivan Bista says
oh my God!!! Agree
She will test positive, just wait. They all slip up, eventually.
210 or 215 ??
I think 210 because it’s a women’s bar
On par with the best IPF squats for the 57 and 63 classes:
But with no wraps, no suit and rock bottom.
looks like 190 to me (think that is a green sandwiched between the blues) but either way, ridiculous.
Definitely no green sandwiched in there. (look at the plates when she strips them off the bar)
Pausing the video when she’s taking off the plate you can see ELEIKO written in yellow on the thinner plate. So it’s definitely a 15, making the weight 200/205 if it’s a women’s/men’s bar
Yeah yellow print, but don’t the Eleiko training discs have a colored strip on the side?
There are some Eleikos at the club I used to train at that were solid black with just the writing in the colours, look like the same plates to me.
Thanks, updated the title

Thanks for the translation

Trainer: “You should take a picture with this barbell.” 🙂
