An Austin youth is looking to defend his two weight lifting titles at the World Power Lifting Championships in Las Vegas, Nev. Sunday, Nov. 21.

Strom Draayer, 12, will be defending his titles in the 148-pound dead lift and the bench press for 12-13 year-olds.

He’s hoping to bench 140 and lift 260 after doing 115.7 and 231.2 at last year’s world championship.
