Who are the most successful national coaches?
The TaekwondoData database enables you to inform yourself about the successes an losses of over 23,000 international competitors. Thanks to the multitude of ranking lists it is possible to gain a completely realistic assessment of those successes.
All successful competitors are, and have been accompanied throughout the duration of their careers by countless coaches that have significantly contributed towards the success of their career. The names of our successful athletes are well known, however often the names of their coaches are only known by a few.We are striving to change this.
We have compiled a complete listing of all tournaments (since 1973) and all nations together with their teams (male and female), which is well over 10,000 lines long. We ar currently sending out a list to each nation displaying all off the tournaments in which the country was represented by a team, male and / or female.
The countries should forward this list on to the relevant people who are able to complete this information for us. We are hoping that as many nations as possible fulfil our requests.
Once we have all, or a main part, of the names of the national coaches listed we will be able to answer a hotly discussed question: Who ist the most successful national coach?
It is therefore fairer if the national coach be awarded all of the won Ranking Points (Tournament Points and Fight Points) accumulated by their entire team. This way it can be guaranteed that the coaches receives extra Ranking Points for medals won by their competitors in addition to those points achieved for wins accrued by the whole team.
To make this result fair to those countries which do not always send a full team to each tournament, we will divide the total number of achieved Ranking Points through the number of participants within the team. In this way the coaches will be rated realistically an fairly against each other.
