The U.S. Taekwondo Team is getting a sneak peak this week at the venues and operations of the ExCel Center in London during the London Test Event. 2012 Olympic hopefuls Terrence Jennings (Alexandria, Va.), Diana Lopez (Sugar Land, Texas), Steven Lopez (Sugar Land, Texas) and Paige McPherson (Sturgis, S.D.), along with National Team Coaches Jean Lopez and Juan Moreno, and Team Leader Meredith Miller are touring the areas that will be used for the Taekwondo competition and the training venues that the U.S. team will utilize at next summer's Olympic Games.
There is also a two-day competition on Saturday and Sunday at the ExCel Center, home of the 2012 Taekwondo competition. American welterweight Philip Yun (Diamond Bar, Calif.) will fight on Sunday in the men's -80kg division as the lone U.S. representative.
