COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. (Sept. 13, 2018) -- USA Taekwondo is in the final stages of approval for the 2019 Pan Am Games selection procedures. For the sparring event, results at the 2018 President's Cup and all G-level sanctioned events through the U.S. Open will be considered for nomination to the 2019 Pan Am Games teams. For poomsae, each country will be allowed to enter a 5-person mixed freestyle team. From this team, they may also draw an individual male, individual female and mixed pair for recognized poomsae.
USA Taekwondo High Performance strongly recommends that USA sparring and poomsae athletes interested in competing in the 2019 Pan Am Games Qualifying Event and 2019 Pan Am Games participate in the 2018 WT President's Cup in Las Vegas, Nev., Oct. 11-14. This event, as well as all sanctioned events through the 2019 U.S. Open, will be used as part of the evaluation process to determine the athletes that will represent Team USA in 2019.
