Bianca Walkden Wants Olympic Taekwondo Place After Injury ‘Hell’
World champion Bianca Walkden hopes to take a “massive” step towards the Rio Olympics by claiming gold at the Manchester World Taekwondo Grand Prix.
Walkden needs a top-six world ranking by the end of 2015 to secure Great Britain a +67kg Olympic berth and is currently third.
She missed much of last year following a knee ligament injury but recovered to take world gold in Russia in May.
“I’ve done really well to get back, but I’m not there [in Rio] yet,” she said.
“I’m probably only at about 80% of my powers still as it takes so long to come back from an injury like I had.”
