19-year-old Jones made history by becoming the first British athlete to ever win a Teakwondo title when she won gold at the London 2012 Olympics.

A performance she was later rewarded for by being awarded an MBE, after being named among the 2013 New Year’s honours list.

She has since gone onto win a Commonwealth title and European Championship silver to add to the continental bronzes she took in 2010 and 12.

Jones was also the winner of the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in 2010.

More recently, she competed at the 2015 European Games in Baku and won gold in the -57kg weight division, making her the second female Taekwondo athlete to do so.
