Tasmania will have strong representation at the CrossFit World Games in August, with Launceston coach Nico Dunstone qualifying for the international competition.

Competing in the Masters 55-59 female category, Ms Dunstone will fly over to Wisconsin in the US to test her skills against the best in the world.

She has already shown she can match it with the best in US, finishing 4th in the Kill Cliff Granite Games in Minnesota last year 

This year will mark the third time she has been a part of the World Games, having qualified in 2013 and 2014.

She said she can’t wait to compete on the world stage again.

“Bring it on,” she said.

“I’m feeling super confident at the moment.

“I just want to get there and be a part of it.

“I'm just keeping that furnace going and then when I get to America it's just going to explode.” 

A fundraising event for Ms Dunstone’s trip will be held at the Royal Oak Hotel on Saturday, July 8.
