Dyer completes gold mission
Krista Dyer achieved her objective of winning a gold medal at the Pan American Wushu Championships in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on Saturday.
Dyer, the Bermuda Sanshou Association team captain, defeated Karen Pitoli, of Brazil, two rounds to nil in the female 65 kilogram division.
It was a case of going one better for Dyer, who had to settle for silver at the previous championships in Lubbock, Texas, in 2016.
Also claiming gold for the island was Ryley Mason, who was handed victory in the junior female 60kg category after her opponent, Ximena Taddea Gonzalez, of Mexico, failed to show.
Instead, Mason fought a Paraguayan opponent in a catchweight exhibition, which the Bermudian won.
The victory was initially awarded to the Paraguayan but the decision was overturned by the arbitration panel.
Dean Jones and Johneiro Outerbridge both picked up bronze medals from the competition.
Jones, who received a bye in the quarter-finals, lost to Jo„o Oliveira, of Brazil in the semis in the menís 75kg.
Meanwhile, Outerbridge beat David Meyohas Bronfmann, of Chile, in the quarters before losing 2-0 to Alex Cisne, of the United States, in the semis.
Kaelin Cox lost in the quarters 2-0 to Brayan Steven Tapiero, of Colombia, in the menís 56kg division.
