An eight-year-old Samoan in New Zealand, Sina Maria Su’a, broke a shot put world record with a 10.37m throw, toppling a 20-year-old world record for her age group.

She is an athlete at the Takapuna Amateur Athletic and Harrier Club where she had only started last season but has already made a world mark.

Sina had only started playing the sport late last year and before the world record-breaking throw, she had only thrown the 2 kilograms shot a number of times.
