No one. There were no Olympic games in 1997. In 1996, the Olympic Games were held in Atlanta, Georgia, but taekwondo was not an Olympic sport that year. Taekwondo had been a demonstration sport at the 1988 and 1992 Games, but the International Olympic Committee (IOC) had decided not to include demonstration sports at the 1996 Games. Taekwondo became a full-fledged medal sport at the 2000 Games in Sydney. it also appeared as part of the 2004 Games in Athens and the 2008 Games in Beijing. Several controversies lead to speculation that taekwondo would be dropped from the Olympic roster, but the IOC voted to keep taekwondo as a part of the 2012 Games in London and the 2016 Games in Rio.
