The double Olympic medalist in Taekwondo (Beijing 2008 gold / Rio 2016 bronze), the South Korean Dongming Cha finished his period of work in Ireland to go to the continent of Oceania to direct a preparation project until 2032. This announcement was made by the federation of Australia in a statement that thrills the TKD community in that country, absent from the Olympic medal table since Sydney 2000.

35 years old, graduated from Korea Physical Education University.

Olympic gold medallist Dongmin Cha will help guide Australia’s next generation of young talent after joining Australian Taekwondo in a bilateral partnership between Kukkiwon and the Korean Embassy.

With the runway to the Brisbane Olympics now set, Dongmin will play a critical role in developing athletes across Australian Taekwondo’s junior and cadet ranks, many of whom will be seeking selection by 2032.
