Winter, 2008: Seasons greetings and welcome to the third and final installment of the USA Taekwondo Referee Development Program e-Newsletter.

Since this will be the last e-Newsletter delivered for the 2008 calendar year, we would like take this opportunity to update our referee corps on current events since the last e-Newsletter and provide a glimpse of what lies ahead in the year to come... 

To bring our referees up to speed since the Beijing Olympic Games, Mr. Leon Preston (2008 Olympic Referee) has been appointed to serve as one of the Vice-Chairs of the World Taekwondo Federation Referee Committee.  Mr. Preston's new role will focus on referee education and training, and is seen by many as a major step forward in the development and training of referees around the world.  The appointment of Mr. Preston indicates that our referee corps is learning and receiving training from a very knowledgeable and experienced team of world class referees.
