Fingers crossed, but no major controversy so far. Looks like WTF did their homework and that the combination of a new scoring system, more strict non-combativeness penalties, electronic body sensors and coaches' challenge have really improved the sport a lot since Beijing.

Wow. So, men's 80+ kg weight class:

1. South Korea fails to win a medal in a Taekwondo event they took part in for the first time ever.

2. Gabon will win their first ever Olympic medal.

3. There is a strong possibility of an all-African final which would mean that every continent has now won a Taekwondo gold medal.

4. Also, London will be the first Olympics where South Korea has not won an Olympic gold in Taekwondo.

Actually, Korea won gold in women's -67 kg.

But Korea's dominance is over in taekwondo. They won 4 golds in Beijing, and now just 1 gold and 1 silver in London. Which is great for the sport. For the first time ever, 8 different countries won a gold in taekwondo, and they all won just a single gold each.
