Colorado Springs / Athens - USATKD and Taekwondo Europe are joining forces in their ambition to further develop the youth taekwondo athletes at an elite level. The introduction of European Ranking lists in 2020 for Cadets and Juniors was already supported firmly by most of the European G-ranked events. With this new collaboration between USATKD and Taekwondo Europe, the US Open 2020 will also be added as the first non-European G-ranked event to the list of ranking events where European Cadets and Juniors will gain ranking points

      On the occasion, World Taekwondo Europe President Sakis Pragalos stated: “I am very excited that even outside Europe event organizers see the benefit of the introduction of the ranking lists for Cadets and Juniors. Having the GMS system (https://worldtkd.simplycompete.com/combined with Simply Compete, I am certain that we are on the right track for the future”.

      The exact rules and regulations for the ranking lists of European cadets and juniors will be equivalent to the existing rules and regulations for the Seniors category, with the exception that the ranking points for the Cadet category will be put to zero after one year, and for Juniors category after two years.

      USA Taekwondo CEO Steve McNally commented: “We are excited to see the introduction of junior and cadet rankings within World Taekwondo Europe; supporting innovation around the world is important for our sport to continue to grow. With US Open 2020 being held in one of the most famous places on the planet – Walt Disney World, Florida – we have a partnership that provides the perfect opportunity for the young European athletes to visit the U.S., enhance their own continental ranking and combine their sport acceleration with a visit to the happiest place on Earth! For U.S. Juniors and Cadets it provides one more valuable opportunity to compete against the best talents of Europe, and gain vital competition experience at an early age. We are looking forward to welcoming World Taekwondo Europe to Florida in late February 2020”.
