Taekwondo at the 2008 Summer Olympics - Men's +80 kg

The men's +80 kg competition in taekwondo at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing took place in the Beijing Science and Technology University Gymnasium on August 23. A total of 16 men competed in this event, limited to fighters whose body weight is more than 80 kilograms. Preliminaries started at 11:00, quarterfinals at 16:00, semifinals at 17:30, repechage at 18.30, bronze medal bouts at 19.30 and the final at 20:30. Two bronze medals were awarded at the Taekwondo competitions.

The main bracket consists of a single elimination tournament, culminating in the gold medal match. A repechage is used to determine the bronze medal winners. Every competitor who loses to one of the two finalists competes in the repechage, another single-elimination competition. Each semifinal loser faces the last remaining repechage competitor from the opposite half of the bracket in a bronze medal match.

Cuban competitor Ángel Valodia Matos was leading 3-2 in the bronze medal bout against Kazakhstan's Arman Chilmanov, until he apparently suffered a broken toe, and was subsequently disqualified for exceeding the allotted one minute of injury time. Matos kicked referee Chakir Chelbat in the face, pushed a judge and spat on the floor of the arena before being escorted out by security. His coach, Leodis González, criticized the referee's ruling as too strict and also accused Kazakhstan of bribing officials.

The World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) said that Matos and González (pending IOC approval and a possible appeal) would be banned from all its future sanctioned events and his records at the Beijing Games would be erased. As Chelbat received a cut lip that required seven stitches, the WTF is also considering legal action against the Cuban team.
