Peter Lopez Peru

  • Country: Peru
  • Sport: Taekwondo
  • Height: 5'10" / 1.78m
  • Weight: 148 lbs / 67.1 kg
  • Born: 9/23/1981
  • Career Highlights: After failing to live up to expectations at the Beijing Games with a disappointing fifth-place finish, Lopez heads to London looking for redemption and with his sights set on gold. Ranked No. 6 in the world in the 68 kg weight class coming into the summer, Lopez has won 33 of 46 registered fights over the course of his career - most notably taking home the gold medal from the 2010 Pan American championships. Other career highlights include winning silver at the 2001 world championships and bronze at the 2003 worlds. Widely considered to be Peru's best shot at winning a medal in London, Lopez has a chance to become just the second Peruvian to ever stand atop the podium, and the first in 64 years (Edwin Vasquez, shooting, 1948).
