2014 USA Taekwondo Annual Awards Announced

“With the stars of 2015 already making waves in this newest of new years at the US Open, we hope you won’t mind us taking a moment to announce and recognize those who, quite frankly, smashed 2014 into submission, demonstrating exceptional commitment, integrity and ability in the world of taekwondo.

We have awards for athletes and coaches of course, but USA Taekwondo traditionally also takes the time to recognize though who make the glory days possible – the referees, the volunteers, clubs, families and individuals who work tirelessly, and often largely unseen simply because they love taekwondo.

So join us as we congratulate the 2014 USA Taekwondo Award Winners – you are all awesome. And for those who were nominated but missed out don’t be too down, you were nominated for a reason – so make 2015 your year.”
