During the WTE Council meeting and General Assembly in Dublin, Ireland two months ago, the New Height Categories for the Cadet division had been presented, as well as at the World Taekwondo Council meeting in Moscow, Russia.
With main objective the health of the taekwondo athletes and a more concise competition basis for athletes in terms of equitability, the way towards the development of the height categories has been given the green light, as the project started by dictation of Taekwondo Europe President Sakis Pragalos and the support of WT President Dr. Choue.
Ont that account, Dr. Choue has approved the first test event taking place in Istanbul, Turkey, during the 7th Turkish Open on 5 February 2020. The event is open for participation also outside the European continent and obtains WTE E-1 ranking. Up to now, almost 150 cadet athletes have already been registered and the ones who have not, are strongly encouraged to do so, in order to participate in a landmark event for the development and sustainability of the sport.
The World Taekwondo President, along with Taekwondo Europe President Sakis Pragalos, WT Secretary General Hoss Rafaty, WTE Secretary General Michael Fysentzidis, and all the WT Committee Chairmans are invited to review the event live and access directly the entire procedure of the competition and the insight derived.
Please advise the following document, regarding more information on the height categories of the event.
