Dunlap is one of five who train at host CrossFit Fort Vancouver who will participate. The others are Adam Neiffer, Mathew Hornung, Kristina Metz and Andrea Roozen.
Participants will compete for a share of $40,000 in cash and prizes. The title sponsor is Schwinn AirDyne. The Clark County YMCA is also helping sponsor the competition.
