A very emotitional letter sent today by WTF President today to all WTF Council Members, Presidents and Secretaries General of WTF Member National Associations, regarding the invitation letter of Taekwondo’s Phase 2 of the Application Process to Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
This is what the letter expressed:
With a pride and joy, I wish to inform you that Taekwondo (Kyorugi discipline) was invited to phase 2 of the application process for Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games by the decision of the Governing Board of the International Paralympic Committee at its meeting on March 5 in Sochi, Russia.
This is a great success and achievement of all taekwondo family who have been working tirelessly for promotion and development of para-taekwondo for the past years.
This is the best news particularly to all para-taekwondo athletes as they are now one step closer to their dreams of appearing on the stage of the Paralympic Games.
I wish to encourage you to continue joint efforts in reaching out to more people with different disabilities and impairments through taekwondo.
For your information, the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games Sport Program will be finally decided on October 6-7, 2014 in Berlin, Germany.
Thank you and congratulations.
World Taekwondo Federation
