BIOGRAPHY

Sarah Stevenson became Britain’s first ever world champion in 2001 and won the nation’s maiden taekwondo Olympic medal in 2008.

Stevenson had already competed at Sydney 2000, finishing fourth, and Athens 2004, ending 11th, before travelling to Beijing, where she almost didn’t climb the podium at all.

She was initially eliminated during the quarter-finals after the referee failed to recognise clear points scored. The decision was overturned but she suffered an ankle injury in the semi-final and lost but she battled on to win bronze.
