BSA president and coach Garon Wilkinson said, “We’ve competed in the world championships since 2007. Our best performance was two years ago, when Jamal Ward captured the silver medal; prior to that, he captured a bronze metal.”

“We’re very hopeful of being able to medal once again this year. Sentwali Woolridge has been undefeated in international competition this year and Reyel Bowen has also fought really well.

“For Krista Dyer, this is her first time in any sort of overseas international competition, but she’s an outstanding athlete. We’ve had a great year. All of our training has been tuned specifically for this competition.”
