List of Olympic medalists in taekwondo
Taekwondo is an Olympic sport that is contested at the Summer Olympic Games. It was introduced in the 1988 and 1992 Olympic Games as a demonstration sport, and made its debut as a full medal sport at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia. Both men and women compete in four events each defined by separate weight classes: flyweight, featherweight, middleweight and heavyweight. Traditionally, taekwondo competitions consist of eight weight classes for each gender, but Olympic taekwondo only have four due to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) limiting the total number of taekwondo entrants to 128.
The competitions are conducted in accordance with the rules established by the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF). The competition format for taekwondo is a single-elimination tournament to determine the gold and silver medal winners, and a repechage is used to determine the bronze medal winner(s). in 2000 and 2004, a single repechage final determined the sole bronze medal winner, but a rule change in 2008 created two repechage finals that allowed for the bronze medal to be shared between two competitors.
Iranian Hadi Saei (2 gold, 1 bronze), American Steven López (2 gold, 1 bronze), and South Korean Hwang Kyung-Seon (2 gold, 1 bronze) share the most medals in taekwondo with three. By defending her title at 2012 London Olympics, Hwang Kyung-Seon became the first woman ever to win three Olympic taekwondo medals. Hadi Saei and Steven López, along with Huang Chih-hsiung of Chinese Tapei, are the only three athletes to have won medals in multiple weight classes. Taiwanese Chi Shu-ju is the youngest athlete to win a medal (17 years, 10 months, 1 day) and Hadi Saei is the oldest (32 years, 2 months, 13 days).Rohullah Nikpai of Afghanistan became his country's first ever Olympic medalist with a bronze medal in 2008.South Korea has been the most successful nation in Olympic taekwondo, winning 14 medals (10 gold, 2 silver, 2 bronze).Chinese Taipei is the second most successful nation with 7 medals (2 gold, 1 silver, 4 bronze). A total of 24 gold medals, 24 silver medals and 32 bronze medals have been awarded since 2000 and have been won by athletes from 28 National Olympic Committees (NOC).
