USA Taekwondo reached a sponsorship agreement with Daedo to use its PSS through 2016. This deal allows USA Taekwondo athletes to keep using the PSS that was used in the 2012 Olympic Games through 2016 unless a different company is named for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. The deal brings stability to USAT membership when it comes to the question of which PSS will be used in the U.S., particularly regarding club members’ concerns in changing equipment.
