Bianca Walkden 3

WORLD and European taekwondo champion Bianca Walkden is heading for Rio – and the 24-year-old from West Derby is intent on making history in Brazil.

Bianca’s place on the plane to Rio for this summer’s Olympic Games was confirmed by Team GB this morning – joining 2012 gold medallist Jade Jones, bronze medallist from 2012 Lutalo Muhammad and Mahama Cho.

Bianca will compete in the +67kg weight division – and is aiming to add Olympic gold to the European and world titles she already holds.

“I’m happy to be selected for Team GB and I can’t wait to get out there now and take the chance to live my dream,” she said.
