The medal hunt for Trinidad and Tobago will continue on Monday in Boxing and Taekwondo. In boxing, Chimere Taylor will face Guillen Benitez of the Dominic Republic. Taylor has faced Benitez before and this will be a rematch of one of her qualifying bouts but she will need to win to continue advancing.

 

In Taekwondo, 2014 CAC bronze medal holder Dorian Alexander will face Columbian Miguel Trejos in the men’s 68kg Contest. Alexander is also a doctor and describes his life growing up as “school, study and train.” Despite working 12-30 hours days in New York where he’s based, Alexander trains anywhere from two to four hours a day, six days a week with former Olympian Lenn Hypolite. Alexander says he wants the gold medal and credits his faith with sustaining him thus far.
