  • 2019 Pan American Games Qualification Tournament and the 2019 Pan American Games Selection Protocol and 2019 World Taekwondo Championships Taem Selection Protocol

(October 30, 2018)

Taekwondo Canada can confirm that the original 2019 Senior World Championship and 2019 Pan American Games qualification and selection protocols stand – which are outlined here.

This is following an appeal heard by the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada (SDRCC) and a thorough review conducted by an Ad Hoc committee, made up of individuals from Taekwondo Canada’s Kyorugi Coaches Committee, and two coaches representing the taekwondo community, formed to assess the selection protocols. 

Taekwondo Canada took the appeal and review seriously and is now committed to a timely finalization of the details on the selection events for the 2019 Pan Am Games Qualification Team, as well as the 2019 Senior World Championships and the 2019 Summer Universiade teams given original event timelines elapsed during the course of the appeal and review process. Details on these will be communicated soon. 

The 2019 Pan Am Games Qualification tournament is tentatively scheduled in early March 2019, subject to changes by Pan Am Taekwondo Union.

Please accept this as notification that Taekwondo Canada’s 2019 Pan Am Games qualification and Pan Am Games selection protocol, along with the 2019 Senior World Taekwondo Championships were appealed to the SDRCC on June 15, 2018.  The parties agreed there were procedural issues with relation to the implementation of the selection criteria.  As a result, it has also been agreed upon to send this criteria back to an Ad Hoc committee to review the selection protocol.  Taekwondo Canada is currently reviewing its Conflict of Interest Policy.
