Aneta Florczyk started her career at the age of 16, as a powerlifter. She won Polish Championships several times, and in 2000 became European Champion. As a first Polish athlete she has broken the barrier of 500 kg in powerlifting. After she had been suspended in national team (the suspension has later been proven unfounded and overruled by the court), she began training weightlifting, becoming Polish Champion in juniors and vice Champion in seniors.
Since 2002 she has started training on the equipment typical for strongman and strongwoman contests. Only a year later she won the World’s Strongest Woman in Zambia and in 2004 – Europe’s Strongest Woman in Ireland.
Later she was World’s Champion / World’s Strongest Woman in 2003, 2005, 2006 and 2008. This means that she has won the competition more than any other woman in history, according to Guinness World Records.
