As Chief Referee for the British Taekwondo Control Board (BTCB) Kevin is regularly invited to put his skills to use as Referee Delegate for the UK at European and World Championship competition and was selected to be one of only 24 International Referees worldwide to participate in the Sydney Olympic Games at the inauguration for Taekwondo as a full participation sport.
