With this post I'm introducing Sport Taekwondo to the forum, a sanctioned Olympic competition that is unknown to many. However the sport has a large cult following in The Americas and most of Europe. Asia and several Middle eastern countries follow the sport heavily and even have professional leagues. for the best introduction I have selected the most talented and energetic fighter of the current generation. The url below is the entire semi-final match between GBR and TUR at the 2011 WTF World Championships in Gyeongju. Tazegul is in Red under TUR, and Stamper is in Blue under GBR.
