Charlotte Craig (born February 2, 1991 in Riverside, California[1]) is a member of the U.S. 2008 Summer Olympic team competing in Taekwondo in the -49 kg division.

Biography Born in Riverside, California. Parents are Jim Craig and Charlotte Craig Sr. Charlotte currently lives in Murrieta, California. When Craig was 2 years old, she had a disfunctional kidney and had it removed. Her doctors told her parents to have her not participate in hard contact sports. When Craig was 5 years old, her father and mother agreed to sign her up for TaeKwonDo. At first, they had her wear extra padding to protect her only kidney, but soon she started to work without it. Charlotte currently trains with Master Jimmy Kim, a 1988 Olympic Gold Medalist in TaeKwonDo. Charlotte and her mother drive 90 minutes from Murrieta to Laguna Niguel four times a week to train with Jimmy Kim.
