SHERWOOD, OR (KPTV) – Think you’re strong? Three young local athletes may have you beat – and they hope to beat their peers on the national stage soon.

Franco Athletic & Sports Training is training several young athletes for the National Weightlifting Championships later this month in California. The event will crown the strongest kids in the country.

These kids will participate in the Olympic events of "Clean and Jerk" and "Snatch.”
