Jade Jones In Good Form For Rio With European Taekwondo Crown

1 Jade Jones

Jade Jones stepped up her bid to defend her Olympic taekwondo title in Rio after becoming European champion in Montreux on Friday.

The Flint 23-year-old beat Sweden’s Nikita Glasnovic 11-5 in a one-sided final to take gold, having previously earned two bronze medals and one silver in the continental event.

A quick start gave Jones a three-point advantage and a trademark head shot early in the second doubled her lead and effectively sealed the contest against one of her chief rivals for the Olympic crown.
