Belarus’ Higher School for Coaches launches taekwondo course
The programme is to be supported by the Embassy of the Korean Republic to Belarus, as the Embassy’s representatives noted at a sitting of the National Olympic Committee. The South Korean guests have donated equipment and uniforms to the Belarusian Taekwondo Federation for the national Belarusian team to wear for the 2012 London Olympics. The Secretary General of the Belarusian National Olympic Committee, George Katulin, emphasised that the Belarusian Taekwondo Federation has enjoyed three years of liaison with South Korean colleagues, with results now evident. The South Korean guests commented that, in Korea, taekwondo is a national sport promoted at all levels. Mr. Katulin thanked representatives of the Korean Embassy to Belarus for their support and voiced his best wishes to the Korean city of Pyeongchang in its bid to host the 2018 Olympics.
