What is Against All Odds?
This is the Inspirational Story of Powerlifter Amanda "Barbie Barbell" Harris! At birth, she was several weeks premature and weighed 5 pounds. Her umbilical cord was wrapped around neck strangling her, and stopping blood flow to the brain. Her left leg was twisted, out of the socket, and lying on her BACK! At 8, she was diagnosed with Acute Scoliosis with a 38 degreecurvature in her spine.
Despite these struggles, at age 9 she set a WORLD RECORD in Powerlifting. At 20 years old, 5 feet 4 inches tall, and weighing 120 pounds, she is a 17 time WORLD CHAMPION in powerlifting, and has broken an unbelievable 468 state, national, and world records. To add to that, she is bright, beautiful, friendly, sweet, and not pompous - just a regular all American girl who is truly a phenomenon!
She doesn't look like the typical female weight lifter in that she doesn't have bulging muscles, but, pound-for-pound, she is the STRONGEST young woman in the world. READ this book; it has many stories and photos that are totally unbelievable!
