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…
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…
