Olympic gold medallist Cha Dong-min led the second of a series of nationwide training sessions being run by Australian Taekwondo.

The South Korean, a three-time Olympian, won the over-80 kilograms heavyweight title at Beijing 2008.

He also won bronze at Rio 2016 and world silver on home soil in Gyeongju in 2011.

More than 100 people attended the session in Western Australia, which followed on from a South Australia event.

Thirty-six-year-old Cha has been integrated into Australian Taekwondo's national performance development programme as the organisation prepares for a home Olympics in Brisbane in 2032.

"It was great to work with the national programme in delivering what was a great seminar and very insightful in the future direction of Australian Taekwondo," said Australian Taekwondo West Australia President Anita Tippet.

"The athletes enjoyed having Cha Dong-min deliver a training session that worked on the foundations of competition taekwondo. 

"Seeing so many happy faces at the end of the sessions and receiving lots of positive feedback was great. 

"Dong-min was definitely an inspiration to the participants.

"Australian Taekwondo Western Australia looks forward to working cooperatively with Australian Taekwondo on more projects and opportunities for our members in the future."

Further events are now planned in New South Wales and Victoria.
