This is just ridiculous! ________________ Taken from The Times : "Aaron Cook, the European champion from Dorset who left the British taekwondo system last year, has found that the organisation he turned his back on has attempted to block his defection to the Isle of Man. Cook had intended to compete at the German Open in Hamburg this weekend. However, he was informed in January that the British federation had alerted the German organisers to articles in the international rulebook that prevented him from doing so. The organisers in Hamburg said that he was therefore ineligible to compete. In the fallout from the dispute, the British federation suggested to the World Taekwondo Federation (WTF), the sports global body, that one solution would be if the WTF stripped the Isle of Man Taekwondo Association (IOMTA) of its official status. However, the WTF concluded on Tuesday that Cook is eligible to compete for the Isle of Man. He will now compete next week in the Dutch Open."
