Jade Jones was the first British athlete to win an Olympic taekwondo title when she took gold at London 2012 at the age of 19 – a performance she was rewarded for by being awarded an MBE after being named among the 2013 New Year’s honours list.

Jade was also a gold medallist at the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in 2010 and also topped the podium in the -57kg category at the 2015 European Games.

She is nicknamed 'The Headhunter' because she prefers to try and score points from her opponent's head rather than their body as successful kicks to the head are awarded more points than successful kicks to the body.
