Jade made history by becoming Great Britain’s first-ever Taekwondo athlete to win gold at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. She was also the youngest Team GB athlete to win gold, the first ever Briton, and the first woman to do so in her discipline.


Biography

Jade Jones is Team GB’s youngest and only Olympic Champion in Taekwondo, and the youngest ever two-time Olympic Champion. She is constantly setting new records that will forever live in the history books.

Affectionately known as ‘the headhunter’ due to her exciting fighting style, Jade is the world’s most decorated ever Olympic Taekwondo athlete and has been ranked the world’s best martial artist, winning numerous international competitions. Arguably Wales’ greatest ever sportswoman, Jade has a huge public following, especially in Wales having had a leisure centre named after her, and twice been voted BBC Wales Sports Personality of the Year.

Although she has starred in primetime shows such as Celebs go Dating, Jade is a humble character. She still counts Flintshire, North Wales as home, and when she’s not busy stamping her authority as the most dangerous female martial artist in the world, she spends her days doing “regular activities that as any girl her age would”.

Unofficially the toughest woman on the planet, Jade is a British, European, European Games, World Series, Commonwealth, World, and Olympic Taekwondo Champion, and has founded the Jade Jones Scholarship programme, helping young women forge a career in sport.
