Among the 16 national team members (8 men and women each), Lee Da-bin is the only ‘Olympic winner from the World Championship Champion’. He is a +67kg silver medalist at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics.

Attention is focusing on whether Lee Da-bin will make up for the disappointment of finishing runner-up at the 2022 World Championship in a year. If he becomes world champion once again, he may gain confidence for Paris 2024.

If you reach the top of the Paris Olympics, you can decorate your career with the ‘Career Grand Slam’. Lee Da-bin is the winner of the 2014 and 2018 Asian Games gold medals and the 2016 Asian Championships.

The grand slams that the Korean national Taekwondo team can achieve are the ▲Olympics, ▲World Championships, ▲Asian Games, and ▲Asia Championships. Lee Da-bin also experienced the top of the 2017 International University Sports Federation (FISU) World Games (Universiade).

Among this year’s national team, the world championship gold medalist is Bae Jun-seo (22, Ganghwa-gun Office), male -58kg, Park Woo-hyeok (22, Samsung S1), male -80kg, and Kang Mir-reu (20, Yeongcheon City Hall), female -46kg.

Mir Kang won the world championship with -42kg in 2018 and Bae Jun-seo with -54kg in 2019. 2022 champion Park Woo-hyuk challenges -80kg for two consecutive wins.
