The State’s strongest woman is also an RSPCA Cupcake Day ambassador.

Held on August 18, the day aims to fight animal cruelty through baking, with donations going to the 56,000 animals rescued, rehabilitated and housed by the RSPCA each year.

Tracey has a 15-year-old cat who lost his tail in a car accident more than 10 years ago.

‘It gives him a lot of character,’ she said. ‘He is the most gorgeous cat, although he acts a bit more like a dog and will wait for me in the driveway.’

She also rescued a 12-year-old staffy from the RSPCA.

‘I think saving a dog is so rewarding and I’m really happy that I could give him a loving home for his last few years,’ Tracey said.

With 16 national records across powerlifting and strongwoman competitions, Tracey can deadlift more than 182kg and squat 155kg.

The bookkeeper is hoping to become the world’s strongest woman.

She is holding a cupcake day event on Sunday, August 17, from 10.30am at McCallum Park, Taylor Street carpark, South Perth forshore (near the Causeway).

People and pets are welcome.
