Sentwali Woolridge captured gold, Jermal Woolridge captured silver, Pitcher captured bronze and Wilkinson finished 6th.

Sentwali Woolridge battled to a convincing 2-1 victory over Ivan Cardenas from Mexico to capture the gold medal in the 70kg or 155lbs Division. Before the tournament, he had to go a day and a half without food in a bid to make the weight.

“It’s the first time I have ever won gold in one of these competitions,” said Woolridge. “It’s an extremely good feeling.”

Jermal Woolridge lost 2-1 to Joshua Cordova of Venezuela in a very close battle to settle for second place, while Pitcher captured the bronze in the round-robin competition.
