Did you know?

  • Taekwondo has its roots in ancient Korean martial arts. Tae means 'to kick or smash with the foot', and kwon means 'to destroy with the fist'.
  • The sport made its Olympic debut at Sydney in 2000. South Korea tops the Olympic medal list with nine golds and 12 medals in total.
  • You score one point for a valid kick or punch to your opponent's torso, two for a spinning kick, and four for a turning kick to the head.
  • As in Beijing, there will be eight taekwondo events at the London Games. There are four weight categories for men and four for women - all played in a knock-out format.
  • Competitors who lose to one of the finalists will enter the 'repechage', which will eventually determine the winners of the bronze medals.
