Recently the contestant went through a challenge organised by the official sponsor GOLD'S GYM LAGOON. A series of physical challenges were organised that tested the stamina and strength of all the contestants. The delegates fought time to finish up 7 different stations - two rounds of dead lift tire plus 10 push-ups, tire squat jumps, 12 sledge hammer tire, 20kg sled pull, abs sit-ups, tire flip and wood flipping.

The challenge was no easy task as many contestants almost fainted. Miss New Zealand, Zoom Fitton found the task very difficult, and said, "It made me really push myself to achieve the best that I could physically perform. It was a great experience as I have never done cross-fit before. I am very proud of my performance today and cannot wait for the results. Overall, it was an intense, exhausting yet fun activity for the girls.” The winners of Miss Fitness sub-competition will be announced later tonight.

The pageant was founded with the aim of awakening, through the theme of Tourism & Environment. Miss ECO International is the only pageant supported by the United Nations. This prestigious global event is organised to bring together representatives of communities and cultures from all over the world. Delegates aim to share their eco, culture and international network.
