11 December 2023

Australian Taekwondo is pleased to provide an important update to the Nomination Criteria for the Paris Olympic Games. We note that at clause 6.12 (a) these Criteria state: 

2024 Defined G-ranked Open events: 

2024 Designated Open events (To be published on the National Federation website at the URL: https://austkd.com.au and communicated through National Federation’s Facebook page at the URL: https://www.facebook.com/AUSTKD and the National Federation’s e-newsletters with a minimum of eight (8) weeks’ notice).

Australian Taekwondo wishes to confirm the addition of the following two events to clause 6.12(a) of the Nomination Criteria for the Paris Olympic Games:

We also provide strong direction that athletes seeking Olympic nomination should participate in these competitions in their respective Olympic Weight Category world division. For clarity this means:

  • An athlete seeking Olympic nomination in the -49kg female Olympic division should compete in the -49kg female division at the above competitions, not in -46kg or -53kg. This equally applies to all other athletes competing in minus weight categories, notably;
  • -57kg Olympic division athletes to compete in the -57kg division at these competitions, not -53kg or -62kg
  • -67kg Olympic division athletes to compete in the -67kg division at these competitions, not -62kg or -73kg
  • -58kg Olympic division athletes to compete in the -58kg division at these competitions, not -54kg or -63kg
  • -68kg Olympic division athletes to compete in the -68kg division at these competitions, not -63kg or -74kg
  • -80kg Olympic division athletes to compete in the -80kg division at these competitions, not -74kg or -87kg.
