Four top taekwondokas switch from Flemish federation to French-speaking federation | Taekwondo


The Flemish federation did not want to give more details about the striking switch. Another press release was due to be sent tonight with their version of the facts. Le Soir is clear, however: a protracted conflict with top sports coordinator Laurence Rase would be the basis of the decision. Rase, in turn, was not available for comment.

According to the newspaper, Jaouad Ahab, who finished in fifth place at the previous Olympic Games in Rio, just like Asemani, would not have agreed with the appointment of a new coach. That dispute is said to have accelerated things in recent days. The four taekwondokas could soon sign a top sports contract at the French-speaking Top Sports Federation.

28-year-old Jaouad Achab became world champion in 2015 and also has three European titles (2014, 2016 and 2019) on his record in the class up to 63 kilograms. He already has the qualification in his pocket for next year’s Games.

Achab has therefore been the best Belgian taekwondoka for years and in 2015 was awarded the Flemish Sport Jewel, a prize from the Flemish Community awarded to a Flemish athlete who delivered a remarkable performance or finished an exceptional career during the year.
