Members of the Executive Council of the Pan American Taekwondo Union talked to masTaekwondo.com in order to clarify and confirm the issue discussed during their extraordinary meeting in which Juan Lopez Delgado, President of the Mexican Taekwondo Federation was appointed acting Vice President of the North American area.
The Council members talked about the details of this situation. Simon Your Hwan Chung who has held the presidency of the Canadian Taekwondo Federation would has been removed of his position due to legal circumstances, consequently he would not be able to carry out his duties in the PATU. That is why it would be necessary that someone would take such responsibility in PATU, until the legal process in Canada comes to an end.
Taken into account the outstanding management and leadership Juan Manuel Lopez has shown in the Mexican Taekwondo Federation and his willingness to work for the development of Taekwondo in the Pan American area, Lopez would have accepted the appointment as acting Vice President for the North American region.
