Sydney 2000

sidneyThe Sydney Olympics' taekwondo event was held in Sydney's Olympic Park State Sports Center with 103 participating athletes - 55 males and 48 females - from 51 countries.

The taekwondo events had four weight categories for each gender. Each participating country was allowed to send a maximum of two male and two female competitors per weight category; the host country was given an exception. The competition rounds were three minutes per round, with a total of three rounds. If there was a tie at the end of the third round, a sudden death round was added.

The sudden-death round declared the winner based on which competitor scored the first point. Repechage rounds were also adapted so that competitors who lost in the quarterfinals would get the opportunity to compete for a bronze medal. Therefore, only one gold, one silver and one bronze medal was awarded per weight category.
