- Australian Taekwondo
Unfortunately our Taekwondo governing body Australian Taekwondo have denied Ali Khalil to be a part of the coaching team to the 2017 World Championships.
Given Ali's coaching history;
• 2x Olympic Coach,
• 3x World champ coach,
• Multi high ranked bench mark events coach,
• 2011 Uni Championships Coach (Australia's first ever gold medal at this event -athlete coached by Ali)
• 2013 World Championships (Australia's first ever gold medal at this event -athlete coached by Ali Khalil)
• Only coach in the Oceania region (and 1 out of 30 in the world) to achieve the highest possible coaching status of Olympic Coach Class.
It is a shame that a late application has prevented Ali as being selected to be a part of the coaching staff for the 2017 World Championships.
Unfortunately this now denies our highest ranked athletes the coaching expertise they deserve.
Ali Khalil secured 3 athletes on team and two of those athletes (Olympians Safwan and Hayder) are the only 2 athletes in Australia who are ranked "podium ready", the highest possible ranking within Australia.
The intention of this petition is not to replace Ali with an already appointedited coach, but to also allow Ali a coaching position on the Australian team.
Please support by signing this petition.
We, the undersigned, call on Taekwondo Australia to send Ali Khalil to the 2017 World Championships as Coach.
