Three countries have been awarded Olympic berths following the reallocation of quota places.

Hong Kong and Papua New Guinea clinched them in the men’s -68kg category, while Fiji have confirmed another in the women’s -67kg category.

In the -68kg category, Alireza Abbasi of the Refugee Team won an Olympic berth at the Asian Qualifiers. He was later ruled ineligible to represent the Refugee Team at Paris 2024. Another refugee athlete, Yahya Al-Ghotany, was granted a licence and will compete at the Olympic Games, while the Olympic berth won by Abbasi at the Asian Qualifiers was reallocated to Hong Kong’s Lu Wai Fung, who lost to Abbasi in the semi-finals of the Qualifiers.

The other two berths were reallocated because the New Zealand Olympic Committee (NZOC) did not approve the participation of the two Taekwondo New Zealand athletes who won the berths at the Oceania Qualifiers.

Papua New Guinea’s Kevin Kassman (-68 kg) lost to New Zealand’s Eisa Mozhdeh in the final of the qualifying tournament, but will now go to the Olympic Games after Mozhdeh’s licence was not approved by the NZOC due to governance issues.

The same happened to Jemesa Landers’ licence. Fiji’s Lolohea Navuga Naitasi, who lost to Landers in the women’s 67kg final, will be given the Olympic berth.

Papua New Guinea and Fiji received their second Olympic berths as they already had one through the Oceania Qualifiers.

For Hong Kong, this is the only licence for the Paris 2024 Taekwondo tournament.
