Taekwondo was first introduced at the Sydney 2000 games. The aim of the game is for the athletes to kick and punch their opponent's torso and head to gain points. The format of the match consists of 3 two minute rounds.

A standard torso strike equals 1 point, a standard head kick equals 3 points, a spinning torso kick also equals 3 points and a spinning head kick equals 4 points.

Steven Lopez (USA) is the joint most decorated fighter in Olympic history. He won 3 medals including consecutive golds at Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004.
