Great Britain have appointed three new taekwondo coaches to see the team through to the 2012 Olympics in London.

Nelson Miller is the team's new high performance coach and will be supported by Paul Green and Stephen Jennings.

Miller, 41 from Cuba, has coached the Dutch national side since 2004 and helped them win the 2006 Senior European Championships.

Green, 27, competed for Britain at the 2004 Olympics, won silver at the 2003 Worlds and gold at the 2004 Europeans.

Jennings, 26, will also compete as well as coach.

Adrian Tranter, chairman of the British Taekwondo Control Board, said: "Our Great Britain team deserves the best support we can find and I believe we have secured the best coaching talent available.

"The achievements of the team in recent months have been outstanding and we believe this success will continue as the team grows."

Gary Hall, performance director for Sport Taekwondo UK which oversaw the appointments with UK Sport, said: "The recruitment of Nelson Miller is a major boost for the players who are already admirers of his achievements with the Dutch national team."
