There are eight different weight classes for Taekwondo, four men’s and four women’s. In this sport, there is a real melting pot of contenders. Of the eight weight classes, there are seven different countries that are favored. China is the lone country with two favorites, and both of those are in women’s weight classes.

The United States is not expected to be real strong in this sport, as they have just three athletes listed for odds to win gold. Steve Lopez has 7/1 odds to win in men’s 80kg, while Terrence Jennings has 25/1 odds in the men’s 68kg weight class. Paige McPherson has 20/1 odds to win in the women’s 67kg weight class.
