The Korea Olympic Committee (KOC) is fighting to keep Taekwondo, the traditional Korean martial art, as an official sport in the 2012 Olympics.

They will dispatch 3 delegations to 15 countries to support their campaign in countries including; the United States, Argentina, Finland and Mexico.

The IOC will decide on the issue at the general assembly in Singapore in July.

Taekwondo first appeared at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, and will be retained for the 2008 Games in Beijing.
