Manchester GP 2015 (17.10.2015)-109

British Olympic champion Jade Jones won her first tournament on home soil since London 2012 with victory at the World Taekwondo Grand Prix in Manchester.

Wales’ Jones, 22, was 4-0 down against long-term rival Eva Calvo Gomez of Spain, but fought back to secure the -57kg title with a 14-4 triumph.

“I wanted to win so much for the home crowd,” she told BBC Sport.

Team-mate Bianca Walkden, 24, claimed silver, losing on golden point to China’s Shuyin Zheng.

Jones, who has already secured Great Britain a Rio Olympic berth for the -57kg division, defeated European Games bronze medallist Nikita Glasnovic of Sweden in the semi-finals.
