Bitter world No. 1 Cook may leave U.K.World top-ranked taekwondo fighter Aaron Cook may turn his back on Britain and compete for another country at the 2016 Rio Olympics after the heartbreaking snub at his home Games.
“In three years I may be under a different flag,” Cook told the BBC. “My dream is to win an Olympic gold in Rio for Team GB but it’s going to be extremely difficult for me to move forward after everything that’s happened.”
Cook was overlooked for London with the national body instead selecting Lutalo Muhammad in the welterweight under-80-kilogram category. Muhammad went on to clinch bronze.
