Paula Sitapa and Pita Taufatofua are the only representatives of Tonga, which is more than 15,000km away from Baku. They are both competing at the World Qualification Tournament for London 2012 Olympic Games, but they are also coaching each other because nobody else from their team could accompany them due to the lack of resources.
They complained that because their country is not very well known and Taekwondo is also a minority sport, they do not obtain as much support as they would wish.
Despite the difficulties they are facing and their results at the World Qualification Tournament, Sitapa and Taufatofua affirmed they would do their best as Taekwondo representatives of Tonga.
