The countdown has begun! Get ready to watch the ultimate fights as the world’s best Taekwondo athletes descend on Manchester for the World Taekwondo Grand Prix Final 2023.
Strategy and skill come into play across three days of fierce competition from the 1st to the 3rd December when around 200 athletes from over 40 global nations will compete at the Manchester Regional Arena.
With places on Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games at stake, the competition will see the fighters leave everything out on the mat as they battle not only to be champions, but to secure their appearances in Paris next summer.
Watch powerful performance as Bradly Sinden, Jade Jones and Bianca Cook all compete alongside their British Para Taekwondo teammates, Amy Truesdale, Beth Munro and Joe Lane. With only the Top 15 world ranked athletes in each Olympic and Paralympic category invited to compete, the World Taekwondo Grand Prix Final sees only the best of the best take to the court.
Launched in 2014, the World Taekwondo Grand Prix typically features three-four Grand Prix events followed by the Grand Prix Final. 2023 has seen Rome, Paris and China host events before the Final in Manchester. 2023 is also the 50th Anniversary of the foundation of World Taekwondo.
The UK event is being hosted in partnership with UK Sport, Manchester City Council and British Taekwondo.
