WTF notice on court decision re PSS use in the world qualification tournament in Baku

Message from WTF General Secretary, Jin Suk Yang.

Dear Sir/Madam,

As Swiss Timing decided to use Daedo PSS at the 2012 London Olympic Games taekwondo competition, the WTF has decided to use Daedo PSS at all qualification tournaments for London 2012 Olympic Games and sent the notice to all MNAs on May 18, 2011.

Following the decision by the WTF, LaJUST recently filed with the Seoul Central District Court a request for an injunction against the use of non-LaJUST PSS at the World Qualification Tournament in Baku, Azerbaijan and on June 27 the court accepted the request for injunction.

According to the court ruling, the WTF will not be able to use Daedo PSS at the 2011 WTF World Qualification Tournament for the 2012 London Olympic Games in Baku, Azerbaijan scheduled for June 30-July 3, 2011.

The WTF informs you with regret of the court decision and advises you that the WTF has decided to use traditional non-electronic body protectors at the Baku World Qualification Tournament, as LaJust PSS is not competent enough to be used at this important tournament due to the technical faultiness revealed to this date.

We ask for your greater understanding and cooperation.

Sincerely yours,

Jin Suk Yang

Secretary General

World Taekwondo Federation
