2019 Categorised Athlete Profiles

Athlete Categorisation is an Australian sport system-wide framework for categorising athletes in an attempt to provide consistency across sports in identifying and subsequently supporting Australia’s best current and future medal prospects at Olympic, World Championship and Commonwealth Games level. 

The Athlete Categories as it relates to Taekwondo consists of six levels. Podium, Podium Ready, Podium Potential, Developing and Emerging categories are the podium pathway, and where Australian Taekwondo and the Australian Institute of Sport Combat Centre resources will be prioritised.

The International category is also provided to recognise those athletes that have yet to meet the performance criteria within the podium pathway but have represented Australia at the sports most recent benchmark event.
