Dr Choue invites all Para-Taekwondo athletes to Moscow 2014 World Champs
Dear beloved Taekwondo Family,
It is a great pleasure to extend this invitation to your National Association to participate in the 5th WTF World Para-Taekwondo Championships in Moscow, Russia June 21-22, 2014.
The development of Para-Taekwondo has made remarkable progress over the past year with great efforts being put into development of classification and competition rules for para-taekwondo athletes. Our hard work has resulted in that kyorugi for limb deficiency athletes is now on the short list of sports considered for inclusion in the 2020 Paralympic program and for the first time the WTF is able to extend an invitation to athletes with an intellectual disability to compete in Poomsae at these Championships.
Your National Association’s participation in the 5th WTF World Para-Taekwondo Championships is essential in order to show the Paralympic family that Taekwondo is a sport practiced all over the world regardless of race, religion, gender or disability and that Taekwondo deserves to be on the program of not only the Olympic Games but also the 2020 Paralympic Games.
Rest assured that the World Taekwondo Federation and the Organizing Committee will do their utmost to ensure the success of the 5th WTF World Para-Taekwondo Championships.
It is my hope to see all of you in Moscow as we will make another footprint in the history of our sport.
