(Ottawa, ON) – Taekwondo Canada is pleased to announce the selection of Alissa Juman (Ontario) and Stéphane Ménard (Quebec) as Referees for the 2024 Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games. Juman, who will work at the Olympic Games and Ménard at the Paralympic Games, went through a rigorous selection process to be named to their respective referee teams.  
This selection process involved separate qualifications where approximately one hundred referees from the Pan American Taekwondo Union (PATU) were selected to one of two selection camps. Upon completion of the camps, 50 referees were selected to move on to the next stage. Once through to the second stage both Juman and Ménard participated in different World Championships, 2023 Grand Prix and Continental Qualifications, all while being evaluated on their ability to referee at the highest level of competition in the world. After these major competitions throughout 2023 both Juman and Ménard were notified by World Taekwondo of their selection to work as referees at the Olympics and Paralympics respectively.
Taekwondo Canada Executive Director Dave Harris said of the appointments, “This is a major accomplishment for Alissa and Stéphane and Taekwondo Canada is proud to see them recognized to referee at the Olympics and Paralympics respectively. The entire organization would like to congratulate them on this significant accomplishment and wish them the best of luck in Paris this summer.”
