Taekwondo review - London 2012 a landmark

London 2012 - the Games proved to be a landmark event for the martial art with a new scoring system and video replays for the first time. Europe led the way as Spain's Joel Gonzalez Bonilla added Olympic gold to his world title. Jade Jones of Team GB was roared by the 6,000 ExCel crowd to victory in the women's -57kg category while China's Wu Jingyu was one of the few returning champions to successfully defend their crown in the -49kg.
