World Taekwondo Grand Prix 2017

11th October 2017

World Taekwondo Grand Prix 2017
The World Taekwondo Grand Prix is almost upon us! This year, acclaimed competitors Jade Jones and Bianca Walkden are fronting the GB efforts in the event in London on 20th - 22nd of October.

Jade Jones has won Gold twice for England in the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, and won bronze and the 2017 World Championships in South Korea, where Walkden got gold!

The pair will compete at the Copper Box Arena in London between the 20th and 22nd October, alongside other members of the GB squad, including double Olympic medallist Lutalo Muhammad and European champion, Lauren Williams to determine whether they qualify for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

This will be the first time Jones has competed in London since becoming Team GB's first Olympic gold medallist at the London 2012 competition. She is excited to be back - "To be back fighting in London again will be just amazing, it will always feel special. Winning my first Olympics at 19 was the best experience I have ever had in my life."
