World taekwondo officials to review UK's Cook snub


Recommended Posts

So Aaron Cook British ranked number ONE NOT SELECTED for the Olympic team. Cook, who has been training outside of the official GB Taekwondo programme, failed to convince selectors – all of whom work, or are part of GB Taekwondo – to change their mind, with the panel again selecting Lutalo Muhammad, ranked 59th in the world. He was informed of his latest snub through the media, and was not told directly

Its OK, we don't need a gold medal in taekwondo

 

Oh we do, we need as many Gold medals as possible, regardless of what discipline they're in.. We could even have an English Kurt Angle (won Gold at the 96 Olympics for "proper" wrestling) if we're lucky.

 

And if an English wrestler wins Gold, he'll emigrate to the US, and get signed up by WWE for a stupid amount of money.

So your going to hire a guy for a really special event. you test them and pick the guy that comes 59 places behind the guy you decide not to hire????? I WONDER WHY Cook was not selected and Muhammed was:suspect::o:suspect:

 

Probably because if they hadn't picked the foreign guy, they would've been accused of racism, so really they're damned either way.

Or maybe as others has suggested it's because Cook turned his back on GB Taekwondo ?
