Aneta Florczyk pseud. Atena (born 26 February 1982 in Malbork) – is a Polish female athlete and strongwoman.

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.[1]

The frying pan stunt and Guinness World Records[edit]

A major boost for her career came when a video clip was posted on the Internet, where Aneta was rolling a frying pan. The movie was unexpectedly popular and it got a lot of media interest. One of the results was the invitation (February 2008) for the Spanish edition of the show, where interesting tries of breaking the Guinness World Records are shown. Aneta had to roll most pans in one minute. She established the record rolling 4 pans.

In November 2008 she has improved her Record – rolling 5 pans. This time it was a part of the Chinese show, shot in Beijing.

Another record has been established once again in Spain, but this time it was about lifting adult men overhead. Aneta's result was 12, while her Spanish rival – athlete Irene Gutierrez - lifted 10 people.
