Australia wins four Olympic quotas at Oceania Taekwondo Qualifiers. TAEKWONDO AUSTRALIA

The Oceania Taekwondo Olympic Qualifiers took place on the 6th of April in Honiara, Solomon Islands. Unlike other continental qualifiers, only one athlete from each weight class could qualify for Paris 2024.

Four of the eight licences went to Australian athletes. All of the country's competitors won their final bouts to secure Olympic berths. Bailey Lewis defeated Isaac Myrie of the Solomon Islands in the men's -58 kg final. Leon Sejranovic was dominant in the men's -80 kg category. In the women's competition, Saffron Tambyrajah (49kg) and Stacey Hymer (57kg) won licences. 

Eisa Mozhdeh (men's -68 kg) and Jemesa Landers (women's -67 kg) won Olympic berths for New Zealand, but their participation in Paris 2024 is still in doubt as they have to be approved by the New Zealand Olympic Committee. Papua New Guinea's Gibson Mara bounced back from a first-round defeat to Fiji's Nipesh Prakash to win the next two rounds and secure the Olympic berth in the men's +80 kg category. The final ticket went to Fiji's Venice Traill in the women's +67kg category.
