GREAT BRITAIN TAEKWONDO
OPRO is the Official Mouthguard of Great Britain Taekwondo, supporting the athletes throughout their careers from training to competition.
Formed in 2002, Great Britain Taekwondo manages the preparation and performance of the British national teams that compete at the International and Olympic level. Under the full time World Class Performance programme, supported by UK Sport and the National Lottery, Great Britain Taekwondo looks after the team of 20 athletes and also manages the national talent pathway programme which is responsible for the development of cadet and junior athletes through a network of talent clubs. The athletes train at the world class National Taekwondo Centre in Manchester, catering for the development of household names such as Jade Jones, double Olympic champion and Bianca Walkden, OPRO brand ambassador, World Taekwondo Fighter of the Year, double world champion and BBC Sports Personality of the Year nominee.
Team GB has an outstanding record in the Olympics, ever since Taekwondo was introduced as an Olympic sport in 1988. To date, Team GB has won 6 medals, including 2 golds and is the 6th most successful nation behind Mexico, the USA, China and South Korea.
Taekwondo is a fast paced, combative contact sport where having a top quality mouthguard is essential. OPRO has strong ties with GB Taekwondo as its Official Supplier and is proud to help the athletes as they prepare for more honours on the International stage. Visit the GB Taekwondo site.
