Olympic24: Stamper Retires To Coach
London 2012 Olympian and former world bronze medallist Martin Stamper will move into coaching the next generation of taekwondo stars after announcing his retirement.
The Liverpool-born father of two was a European Youth runner-up in 2001 and made his senior World Championship debut in 2005.
He went on to win a European silver medal in 2008 before his most productive season three years later as he claimed World Championship bronze in South Korea plus title wins at the US, German and British Opens.
