This Inspiring 9-Year-Old Is Shutting Down Bullies By Breaking Records
She just finished a 24 HOUR obstacle course
Milla Bizzotto used to get bullied for not being good at sports. Well, this week she just became the youngest person ever to complete an intensive NAVY SEAL-designed, 24-hour obstacle course. Not by a small margin either; there wasn’t even anyone else under 18 competing. Who’s bad at sports now, HUH BULLIES?!
Milla decided a while back that she wasn’t gonna take any s**t (okay she probably didn’t say s**t, she’s only nine) from bullies anymore. Speaking to the Miami Herald she said, “I didn’t want anyone else to go through what I did. I want to set an example and show other kids that they can do or be anything they want”.
So she started training, since then she’s completed a Spartan Race (yes that’s as epic as it sounds), a 15k and then the small feat of running 36-miles, swimming 5-miles and competing 25 obstacles in 24-hours. As for the bullies? Yeah, they don’t bother her any more.
According to her dad, who runs a gym in their hometown of Miami, Milla spends at three hours everyday training in the gym, just because she loves being there. She’s even helped launched a new “Spartan Kids” programme at the gym to help kids overcome any obstacle.
“I want to inspire a generation,” she said, “I don’t get bullied anymore. I know how to stand up for myself now. And I love what I do. I want to do it forever.” Right that’s it; we’re joining the gym, any minute now. Here’s Milla’s super-pumped training video for some inspo.
