A 15-year-old Calera girl is a national champion in weightlifting.

Bailee Arthur brought home two gold medals and one silver medal from the USA Weightlifting National Youth Championships.

She lifted a total of 304 pounds in three separate events June 22-25 in Atlanta, Georgia.

 "I like to picture myself catching the weight and remembering the feeling of a previous weight I warmed up at," Arthur said. 

She is now preparing for another competition next month, with her sights set on next year's nationals and even worlds.
