Kenyan Police Taekwondo Club coach Bishop Edward Musamusi believes that the 4th edition of the Ambassadors Taekwondo Cup that starts today and end on Sunday at Amahoro Indoor Stadium will be very competitive.

Speaking to Saturday Sport ahead of the two-day competition, Musamusi said, “We expect a very competitive tournament because Rwanda has experienced players, who hold belts and have participated at the international level.”

However, he warned the hosts not to rest on their laurels, “They have been to our country and we know some of them, who have performed well.”

This year’s tournament will attract over 120 competitors, according to the Rwanda Taekwondo (RTF) secretary general Placide Bagabo.

The competitors will come from four countries including hosts Rwanda, Kenya, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Unlike the past three editions when only national teams were competing for medals, this year, it is clubs that will fight for supremacy, with the exception of Uganda that has requested to send one club and the national team.

Hosts Rwanda will field 14 clubs; Kenya (four clubs) and DR Congo will field one while Uganda will field one club and their national team.
