I know that Jade Jones switched from ITF to WTF around 5 years before she won Gold in London.

Are there any other WTF players on an international level that have an ITF background?


The UK have the "Fighting Chance" program and Australia also had something similar to find new talents for their Taekwondo team.

The U.S.A.T. national last year had over 100 I.T.F. fighters come and competed, but yes as a matter of fact something like 15% of the top 100 in each weight class had a I.T.F. background. Mas did an article on it a few years ago.
