The tri-city area's muscle was well represented recently in Las Vegas.

The Rivieria Hotel and Casino in Sin City was the site for the 100% RAW Powerlifting Federation World Championships, where a trio of tri-city lifters powered their way to top finishes.

Chino Valley's Spencer Coffin, 14, won three first-place finishes in the 165-pound Teen Division. Coffin, a freshman at Chino Valley High School who also is the starting goalkeeper on the Cougars' boys' soccer team playing in this week's state tournament Final Four, captured first in the combined squat-bench-deadlift heats (810 pounds overall), deadlift only heat (363 total pounds), and the strict curl heat (110 total pounds).

His lift of 155.5 pounds in curls set a new world record by five pounds in his age division.

Daniel Hernandez, 14, a freshman at Prescott High School, placed first in curls (107 ponds), second in powerlifting (combination of bench press, squats, deadlift) with 849 pounds overall. His lift in curls set a new world record in his age/weight division.

Longtime Prescott resident - and popular science fiction novelist - Alan Dean Foster placed first in the Master 65-69 division's push/pull event with 606 total pounds. Foster captured second place in the bench only event with a total lift of 287 pounds.

The 100% RAW event features weightlifters who are drug free and can only use wrist wraps.
