Whanganui's standout sports stacker Jasmine Anthony and the members of Marton's Arthur family have again been named in the New Zealand team who are eligible to go to the 2018 World Sport Stacking Championships in America next April.

Anthony, having been to two world champs, has been named for the Under 20 females, while three-time attendee Caleb Arthur is in the Under 20 males group.

Both were also named for the 2017 team to go to the world championships in Taiwan this past April, however they opted not to travel as the New Zealanders in this minor sport must cover their own travel costs.

Also named in the 2018 team are Sophia Arthur (Under 20 Females), Blair Arthur (Male Masters) and Whanganui's Ian Kerr (Males Masters).


"Please consider that this team is our named stackers, and is subject to stackers' availability," said the WSSA NZ press release.

"It is a huge commitment for stackers and their families and some may not be able to travel next year.

"We take nothing away from them making the team and being, for their age group, the very best New Zealand has."
