Biography

Apart from Hadj Saei Bonehkohal, Steven Lopez is the only Olympian to win three medals in taekwondo – one each time the sport has been held at the Olympics. He won his first title in the 68 kg class in Sydney, then moved up to the 80 kg class for his second gold in 2004. On the 2008 US Olympic team, Lopez was accompanied by his siblings Mark and Diana. All three of them medaled, with Steven taking bronze (80 kg), Mark silver (68 kg) and Diana bronze (57 kg). Besides his Olympic medals, Lopez has won a record five world titles, one in the lightweight division (2001) and four consecutive ones in the welterweight division (2003, 2005, 2007 and 2009).
