USOC Hearing Panel Update

Oct. 04, 2013, 12:11 p.m. (ET)

The USOC Hearing Panel conducted a conference call with several representatives from USA Taekwondo on Thursday, Oct. 3, 2013. The USA Taekwondo representatives were CEO Bruce Harris, Board Chair John Holloway, USOC AAC Representative Lynda Laurin, Board Member and Audit Committee Chair Jeff Walters, USA Taekwondo Volunteer Don Parker and Attorney William Robers.

The meeting lasted just under 90 minutes and included a presentation from the USA Taekwondo representatives followed by a Question and Answer period from the USOC. Additionally, various USOC offices that have worked closely with USA Taekwondo during the Probation period also presented their views on the current status of the organization. The USOC Hearing Panel will make its final determination and will submit a recommendation to the USOC during its Board Meeting Thursday, Oct. 10. That is also the date that the fate of USA Taekwondo as the NGB for Taekwondo will officially be announced.
