She wrote her own page on the history of European taekwondo since is the first athlete to repeat the triumph of a Gold Olympic Medal. Unstoppable, dedicated to her target, she managed to walk all the steps towards victory. Today she placed Great Britain at the first position in the Olympic ranking for the European countries! 16 to 7 the score against Eva Gomez Calvo, an athlete that she competed too many times in the past. 
Most of them she left defeated but this time was her battle to win. Head kicks the one after the other never left any opportunity window open for the Spanish champion. At the age of 23 Jade Jones created her on myth and for certain she has the future to achieve even greater moments in her sports career.
As Jones stated to the BBC:
"It feels unbelievable, I can't really explain it.
"I didn't realise how much pressure I would feel coming into this - even in the first few matches I just felt so pressured - so to pull it off... my coach is a psycho and it's all down to him. The Great British team train so hard.
"I'm still young. I'm only 23 and I'm a double Olympic champion already so it's crazy.
"Before the competition I've been crying in the sessions and you just can't see it happening because you're so stressed and training all the time.
"But I did it when it mattered and I'm buzzing."
This is the first GBR representative athlete competing in Rio 2016 and for sure they will have more medals to celebrate. 
ETU President Sakis Pragalos, stated: “My warmest congratulations to Jade Jones, a phenomenal athlete that raises the GB Taekwondo with her achievements. Congratulations to all the GB Team for the hard work. “
