Пресс-релиз WKF:

Исполнительный совет Международного олимпийского комитета (МОК) согласился сегодня добавить каратэ в спортивную программу юношеских Олимпийских игр 2022 года, которые пройдут в Дакаре (Сенегал). Это решение представляет собой еще одну выдающуюся веху в спорте, и оно дает Каратэ еще одну возможность продемонстрировать свои многочисленные ценности на олимпийской арене после Олимпийских игр 2018 года в Буэнос-Айресе и Олимпийских игр 2020 года в Токио.

Вдохновленный успехом юношеских Олимпийских игр 2018 года в Буэнос-Айресе, каратэ продолжит участие в программе самого большого спортивного события для несовершеннолетних в мире. Спорт дебютировал в Буэнос-Айресе в 2018 году; Это был захватывающий турнир, который навсегда изменил историю дисциплины.

«Решение включить каратэ в программу« Дакар-2022 »снова является большим достижением для нашего спорта. Каратэ продемонстрирует свою значительную молодежную привлекательность на мероприятии в Дакаре в 2022 году, и мы еще раз продемонстрируем, что каратэ заслуживает того, чтобы быть основным видом спорта Олимпийских игр. Я уверен, что весь мир каратэ будет праздновать эту фантастическую новость, все мы в единстве будем готовы испытать еще один знаменательный момент для каратэ», — сказал президент WKF Антонио Эспиноз.

Юношеские Олимпийские игры 2022 года запланированы с 21 октября по 15 ноября 2022 года. Хотя даты соревнований по каратэ ещё не утверждены, турнир по каратэ в Дакаре будет состоять из шести категорий кумитэ с тремя категориями для каждого пола. Количество участников будет увеличено с 8 на категорию в Буэнос-Айресе до 12 участников в каждой категории в Дакаре.

WKF press release:

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) Executive Board agreed today to add Karate to the sports programme of the 2022 Youth Olympic Games to be held in Dakar (Senegal). The decision represents another outstanding milestone for the sport, and it gives Karate one more opportunity to show its many values at the Olympic stage after the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires and the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

Inspired by the success of the 2018 Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires, Karate will continue in the programme of the biggest underage sporting event in the world. The sport made its Olympic debut in Buenos Aires in 2018; It was a thrilling tournament that forever changed the history of the discipline.

“The decision to include Karate in the programme of Dakar 2022 is again a great achievement for our sport. Karate will show its significant youth appeal at the event in Dakar in 2022, and we will demonstrate, once again, that Karate deserves to be an Olympic core sport. I am sure that the whole Karate world will celebrate this fantastic news; all of us in unity will be ready to experience another landmark moment for Karate,” said WKF President Antonio Espinós.

The Youth Olympic Games 2022 are scheduled from October 21 to November 15, 2022. While the dates of the Karate competition are yet to be confirmed, the Karate tournament in Dakar will comprise six Kumite categories, with three categories per gender. The number of competitors will be increased from eight per category in Buenos Aires to 12 per category in Dakar.

 

IOC press release:

SPORTS AND EVENT PROGRAMME FOR THE YOUTH OLYMPIC GAMES (YOG) DAKAR 2022, WHICH WILL SEE FIVE SPORTS JOIN THE INITIAL 28 ON THE PROGRAMME AND FULL GENDER EQUALITY IN TERMS OF NOT ONLY THE NUMBER OF ATHLETES, BUT ALSO THE MALE AND FEMALE REPRESENTATION IN EACH SPORT AND EVENT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN OLYMPIC HISTORY.

Innovation and an ongoing focus on youth sport have been paramount for the athlete competition programme from the outset of the Youth Olympic Games. To follow the natural pathway of the Youth Olympian, Dakar 2022 will see inclusion of all the youth-focused sports proposed by Paris 2024: breaking, surfing, sport climbing and skateboarding. Highly popular youth-focused sports seen at previous YOG, such as futsal, basketball 3×3 and hockey 5s, will continue for 2022, while new events will also make their debut, such as beach wrestling, and the sport of karate will continue its YOG journey.

“The Youth Olympic Games Dakar 2022 will be the first Olympic event on the African continent which is historic for Senegal and historic for the continent of Africa. The agreed athlete competition is youthful and completely gender-balanced and shows that the IOC continues to develop the Youth Olympic Games that will feature over 4500 athletes from all NOCs.”, said IOC President Thomas Bach.

Following the initial athlete competition programme confirmation in March 2019, significant work has been undertaken by the IOC in parallel with the International Federations to reach a new milestone in gender equality across all sports, while helping to reduce costs and demands on the Dakar 2022 organisers. In particular, the sports of boxing, gymnastics and wresting will also reach gender parity for the first time.

In line with the New Norm approach to reduce the cost and complexity of the Games, the sports and event programme for Dakar 2022 will maintain the overall number of events (239) from Buenos Aires 2018, while reducing the Youth Olympic Village capacity from 4,000 athletes to 2,650 via the introduction of the two waves of athletes system. This will allow for an increase in athlete participation to over 4,500 without any additional impact on infrastructure.

Existing venues have been identified for each sport to ensure that the Youth Olympic Games are adapted to the local environment by maximising existing, temporary or shared venues, such as a temporary venue for hockey, a coastal programme for canoe and rowing, and the first beach start and open-water swim for modern pentathlon at the YOG.

To ensure alignment with the elite level youth pathway, all sports are considered with the natural progression of the athlete in mind.  Each International Federation has proposed formats for Dakar 2022 that represent a natural progression in the careers of the young athletes and onto the Olympic stage.
