Bermuda’s Kaelin Cox and Garon Wilkinson made an excellent showing to win gold medals at the Panamerican Kung fu & Taiji Championships in Costa Rica.

Pan American Bermuda August 2017

Cox and Wilkinson put it all on the line in their final event to claim gold over Brazil and USA in Duilian.

They explained that Duilian is a choreographed fighting set against each other displaying various Kung fu techniques, and these sets are what make up the fight scenes in Kung fu movies.

Cox and Wilkinson completed an open hand fighting set to go up against USA’s straight sword vs straight sword and Brazil’s spear vs broadsword to win the gold medal.

Cox and Wilkinson also won gold in Southern Shaolin Open Hand and in the Chain Whip Form divisions, and Cox added another medal by claiming a silver in the spear division.

      So give up on tourism? Very strange suggestion for our second economic pillar, and for a sector which has shown growth over the last few years.

      Partisan zealots such as yourself will destroy this island.

      @ Jus’ Askin’- what good would that do? Not taking anything away from these fine performances, but what tangible benefit does Panamerican Kung fu & Taiji Championship provide to the island beyond goodwill.

    Bermuda Government should spend money on the athletes instead of Friends n Family.

  3. Interesting says:

    Serioulsy though, congrats guys.

    On the other comment line, lets move money from cricket and football to sports where our athletes are doing well – the above, Rugby, Triathalon, etc.

      Bermuda rugby isn’t exactly setting the world on fire, so why disparage the national sports?
