Nine athletes from the Bermuda Sanshou Association will hope to be in the medal hunt at the Phoenix Wushu Nationals in Phoenix, Arizona, this weekend.

Krista Dyer, Kallan Todd, Quennel Robinson, Enzi Johnston, Muryah Swan, Geraldine Sidders, Tristan Robinson, and Jonathan Trott will compete in sanda [Chinese kickboxing].

Kaelin Cox is the sole taolu [a set of connecting stylised movements] participant.

Accompanying the team, which leaves the island tomorrow [March 15] will be coaches Garon Wilkinson, Cyril Whitter III, and Che Bean, and judges Dwayne Cox and Nolette Webb.

The team heads to Phoenix in fine form, with Dyer winning silver at the World Wushu Championships in Fort Worth, Texas, in November last year.

Meanwhile, Cox claimed four medals at the Fourth Pan American Kungfu Championships in Markham, Ontario, last summer; Dyer and Quennel Robinson won gold in sanda; Swan, Todd, Sidders and Tristan Robinson claimed silver and Johnston and Trott took bronze.
