The US Olympic taekwondo team is getting set to head to London in a few months to compete for multiple individual medals.

According to Sarah Stevenson from BBC Sports, countries are only allowed to have a total of four qualifiers for the Olympic tournaments. These tournaments will consist of 16 people for each of the four weight classes and both genders.

That makes a total of eight weight classes with a total of 128 competitors for just 24 medals. The U.S. will have to put out four amazing talents just to medal in the maximum of four weight classes in which they can have representation.

Here is the BBC's link to the Qualification PDF: LINK.
