Kuhn has broken run on tour
TWO broken toes won't stop Robbie Kuhn taking his place when the Vodafone Queensland Beach Volleyball Tour comes to his hometown, Rockhampton, on Saturday.
The 17-year-old will team with Townsville's Luke Laming as the sixth seeds in the men's division at Citibeach.
Kuhn, without realising it, broke two toes on his right foot during a training mishap on Monday.
"I woke yesterday (Tuesday) and couldn't bend them,'' he recalled.
"It was pretty painful.
"That's when I went to see the doctor.''
Ryan Carter and Marc Hubbard will enter the Citibeach round as top seeds.
Kuhn, despite his injury and never having played with his partner, said they were a genuine chance.
"We should finish in the top three,'' Kuhn said.
"I'm just going to strap them (toes) and hopefully it will go all right.''
Kuhn has been involved in the sport since he was 10.
Last year he won the Queensland junior under-23 title at Surfers Paradise with Isaac Kapa.
Kapa will team with Shaun Howard at Citibeach as the ninth seeds.
Ten teams make up the men's draw, while six pairings will battle it out in the women's division.
Players had to hold a AAA rating or below to enter.
