Olympic Champion Jones Headlines British Taekwondo Team For Rio 2016
London 2012 gold medallist Jade Jones is eyeing the successful defence of her under 57 kilograms Olympic title after officially being selected in Great Britain’s four-strong taekwondo squad for Rio 2016.
Jones is one of two London 2012 medallists in the team with Lutalo Muhammad also included as he looks to add to the bronze medal he won in the under 80kg division.
World champion Bianca Walkden will aim for a first Olympic title at over 67kg, while Mahama Cho completes the team at over 80kg after securing a quota place for Team GB earlier this year.
“I’m going to Rio for gold and I’ll be leaving everything on the mat so that I can come out of the ring and know I have given it my all,” said Jones, who has won two European titles since her success in 2012.
