About this product
- DescriptionShe's called 'The Headhunter'. Petite North Walian Jade Jones certainly lived up to her nickname at London 2012 when she fought her way to become Britain's youngest Olympic Champion. Using her trademark style of scoring extra points by targeting kicks to her opponent's head, Jade secured her place in Olympic history as Britain's most successful taekwondo player adding the Olympic Gold to her medal collection. In Headhunter Jade, still only 20, describes how her passion for the sport was sparked at the age of eight when her Grandad first took her to a class at his local club. Over the years her ambition and hard work has paid off, winning her numerous Sportswoman of the Year awards. As she works towards her Olympic goals for Rio 2016, Jade follows her mantra 'If you believe...you can do it! Try hard eugh and you can!' And she does.
