Taekwondo is one of two new Paralympic sports at Tokyo 2020. There are two forms: Gyeorugi for athletes with upper limb impairments and Poomsae for athletes with intellectual impairments. Only Gyeorugi will be practised at the Tokyo Games. Events are divided into four sport classes, K41 to K44, with K41 being for athletes with the greatest degree of impairment. Men and women will each compete in three weight classes – from under 61 kilos to over 75kg for men, and from under 49kg to over 58kg for women. Head and trunk protectors are worn. Read more at the Tokyo 2020 website.
