The WTF has informed that a total of 121 athletes from 40 countries of the five continental unions have been registered to compete in the World Para Taekwondo Championships that will take place in Moscow, Russia, on June 21-22, 2014. We will witness the inclusion of practitioners-athletes with intellectual disabilities in Poomsae, which will mark a milestone in the history of Taekwondo around the world. “masTaekwondo.com” and “masTaekwondo TV” bring you the details.
This will be a transcendental event, not only for athletes with disabilities but for Taekwondo itself. That is why we made up our minds to send some of our staff to give a complete press coverage like never done in an event of this kind.
Additionally, as in past editions, athletes with physical disabilities in their upper limbs will also compete.
Undoubtedly this will be a major step for the incorporation of Taekwondo in the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo, being the main objective of Dr. Chungwon Choue, President of the World Taekwondo Federation.
From masTaekwondo.com, we always, bet on the spread of global sport, without limitations or boundaries.
