Aaron Cook speculates changing nationality

Although British Taekwondo Federation said that Aaron has the doors open, the athlete says that while this directive technique is still in charge he has no chance in the team.


The Dorchester athlete says he has no future under the current regime of the British Taekwondo and accused its chairman, Adrian Tranter, Manager Gary Hall and coach Steven Jennings of running a “dictatorship”.


“I want to win gold in Rio de Janeiro and I would love to do it for Great Britain, but as things are right now with these people in the Federation, there is simply no way I can work.”He continued stating categorically, “In the worst case I will have to find another country. If that’s the only way to win gold in Rio de Janeiro, then that’s what I have to do.”


“I have dreamed of winning a gold medal for Great Britain and celebrate with my flag singing the hymn,” he said. “It would be sad to miss it, I don’t want to let it go, but I want an Olympic gold medal around my neck and I will do everything I can to make it happen.”


Hall insisted that the doors remain open for the European Champion “We will continue trying to work with Aaron though it is clear it is up to him to decide if he would be available for Britain in the future.”
