Bronze for Jade Jones in World Taekwondo Grand Prix Finals
London 2012 gold medallist Jade Jones settled for bronze at the World Taekwondo Grand Prix Finals in Mexico City.
The 22-year-old from Wales, who had already secured a quota spot for Great Britain in the -57kg category at Rio 2016, defeated Sweden’s Nikita Glasnovic in the bronze medal play-off on impact – after neither fighter was able to make a breakthrough in the golden point round.
It was the second time Jones had been taken to a golden point round, having lost her semi-final to eventual gold medallist Hedaya Malak, with the Egyptian triumphant by superiority.
Jones, who has won gold in both the Manchester and Samsun Grand Prix’s this year, had earlier beaten France’s Floriane Liborio 5-0 in her quarter-final.
