World Taekwondo, the governing body of Olympic style taekwondo, announced it will be canceling this year's junior world championships due to health and medical concerns. The event was to take place in Sofia, Bulgaria which will instead now host the 2022 junior world championships.
A meeting of the World Taekwondo general assembly, also scheduled to be held in Sofia, will take place in a virtual conference on October 6. While no decision has been made on other tournaments set for later this year, it was decided the inaugural World Taekwondo Hall of Fame induction ceremony will be postponed until 2021.
