Swiss Timing has selected Daedo PSS as the electronic scoring system to be used at Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games, which will be held next October in the Argentinian capital. The event will last from Saturday October 6 until Thursday October 18, with Taekwondo as one of the main sports included in the programme.
The event, promoted by the the International Olympic Committee (COI), gathers young athletes aged between 15 and 18, and it is held every four years. World Taekwondo has established a G-10 category for the event, which makes it a great opportunity for youngsters to take a step forward in the official rankings.
The Youth Olympic Games is the world’s largest multi-sport event for high-performance young athletes, that aims at inspiring athletes to embrace the Olympic values of RESPECT, FRIENDSHIP, AND EXCELLENCE.
As a results of this choice from Swiss Timing, the World Taekwondo Qualification Tournament for the event, which will take place in Hammamet, Tunisia, between April 6-7, will also have Daedo PSS as its scoring system.

This Qualification Tournament will be the preamble to another big event of the year 2018: The Hammamet 2018 World Taekowndo Junior Championships, a G-6 category competition which will also use Daedo PSS during the 5 days of action (April 9-13).
