New Zealand is in danger of being left without an Olympic quota in taekwondo. On 30th January Taekwondo New Zealand (TNZ) announced the names of the four athletes selected to represent New Zealand at the upcoming 2024 Oceania Olympic Qualifiers Tournament. Cole Creich-Watene (men's -58kg), Eisa Mozhdeh (men's -68kg), Jamie Carpenter (women's -57kg) and Jemesa Landers (women's -67kg) were due to compete for qualification spots at the continental qualifiers. However, their participation at Paris 2024 will be in doubt even if they win the continental tournament.
