THREE sport aerobic dynamos have proven Coffs Harbour can compete on the world stage.

Years of hard work have paid off for local girls Claudia Baff, Brooklyn Leonard and Paris Warncken, with the Cassie Scully-coached trio collecting silver at the FISAF World Aerobic Championships on the Caribbean island of Martinique.

During the thousands of hours spent perfecting their energetic routine, the 13-year-olds dreamt of wowing the judges at a world championship.

When the moment arrived, the girls delivered.

The 'CASS' Rock team was only narrowly beaten by the Czech Republic, but they gave them a scare and a run for their money by performing their best routine ever in the 35-degree heat.

Paris and Claudia backed up their outstanding performances in the cadet individual section, finishing fourth and fifth respectively.

As the coach of the tiny powerhouses, Miss Scully said there were plenty of people on the Coffs Coast who could take a small slice of credit for the silver medals.

"I just want to thank everyone in the Coffs Harbour community who has supported the team in their fundraising over the past 12 months," she said.

"It's been a three-year dream come true for the athletes and their family."
