    From what little research I could be bothered to do, it does seem like she's on par with males in her age bracket. There were some IPF sub-juniors who crushed her numbers at the 2017 championship obviously, but most of them were a year or two older.

    Kind of pointless to compare at such young age though, since ability is dictated by what stage of puberty the lifter is in. In this respect, the males are actually at a disadvantage.

    Compare Reeves to the female sub-junior side though, and she's really, really good - up there with the best of them. Assuming we don't deduct 10-15 kg from her pb to allow for competition conditions.

    15 years is not that young. Males are still at advantage at this age. That's why we have different classes for girls and boys.

    In the PED age with female feats and old man feats I take a lot of things with a grain of salt.

    15 years old. To think that she could quite possibly have been in puberty since 11 or 12 makes it more impressive

    So the insecurities of a few bodybuilders encompass and apply to all "big guys"? Also, is it possible that some bodybuilders don't have mental issues and are doing bodybuilding to make a career out of it, get sponsored, and bang gym hotties.

    She is too young to take PEDs. I don't think a 14 year old girl would take them.

    Just remembered who she was. April Mathis. Her best raw bench is 457 pounds. Highest raw bench from a female I believe. I wonder if this Reeves girl could top her one day.

    Here is a video of a 447 raw bench
