Jade Jones-Hall competes in the T54 category, is a medallist across multiple disciplines and is one of the most exciting talents in British Paralympic sport.
Having made her debut in the 400m, 800m and 1500m at London 2012 she reached the finals of all three disciplines at the 2013 World Championships, won a 1500m Commonwealth Bronze medal in 2014 and won Silver and Bronze in the 800m and 1500m in the 2014 European Championships.
Having competed across similar distances in Rio she went on to break the 1500m British record in 2017.
Most recently she has switched her attention away from the track and towards paratriathlon and marathon.
With a silver medal won at the World Paratriathlon Championships in 2017 Jade Jones-Hall went on to secure paratriathlon gold and marathon bronze at the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.
Jade Jones-Hall was born without a right femur, which meant that she would have to use crutches or a wheelchair for the rest of her life.
She opted to have her foot amputated at the age of eight, but it was not until the age of 12 that the opportunity to try a racing chair presented itself at a school sports day.
Watching that day was Paralympic legend Tanni Grey-Thompson, who seeing Jade’s determination and talent invited her to a training session, and has gone on to train and mentor Jade ever since.
An extremely self-assured and ambitious young athlete, she was shortlisted for BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year, has commentated for Channel 4 during the IPC World Championships and is currently juggling her training with studying for a law degree.
Jade is a confident motivational speaker and can address the following themes:
- Overcoming obstacles
- Goal setting
- Building a team
