OLYMPIC gold medallist Jade Jones was in Somerset at the weekend to meet fans and holidaymakers.
The 21-year-old took the taekwondo crown in the 57kg at London 2012, and is set to represent Team GB again at the Rio de Janeiro tournament in two years’ time.
She was in Burnham on Saturday visiting Sunspot Amusements on the seafront, as the group is backing her financially ahead of the next Olympics.
Taekwondo was one of Team GB’s beneficiaries following their performance in London, with its funding increased from £4.8million to £5.2million for the Rio games.
