WTF Para-Taekwondo Committee meets in Moscow ahead of World Champs
A WTF Para-Taekwondo Committee meeting was held in Moscow, Russia on June 17, 2014, with all of its members attending.
The meeting took place at Korston Hotel in Moscow just four days before the opening of the 5th WTF World Para-Taekwondo Championships scheduled for June 21-22, 2014. The two-day championships are expected to draw a total of 121 athletes from a record 40 countries.
Mr. Koos Engelbrecht chaired the committee meeting with the other four members attending. They are Mr. Gabriel Fife, Mr. David O’Sullivan, Ms. Terrie Moore, and Prof. Fernando Akilian.
“It is important to put taekwondo on the official program of the 2020 Paralympic Games. But what is more important for us is to broaden the base of para-taekwondo around the world,” said Mr. Enelbrecht in his opening remarks.
Also attending the meeting was WTF Secretary General Jean-Marie Ayer, who briefed the Committee members on the IPC meeting results in Bonn, Germany on June 13.
