Double Olympic Taekwondo champion and a contestant on The Jump, Welsh ‘headhunter’ Jade Jones’ net worth is still under review.
Jade Louise Jones was born to Gary Jones and Jayne Ferguson in Bodelwyddan, Denbighshire, Wales, on March 21, 1993. Growing up in the town of Flint, Jade Jones came to know about Taekwondo through her granddad Martin Foulkes.
How did Jones gain her fame?
After completing her schooling at Flint High School, the 16-year-old Jones embraced full-time. Her granddad became her biggest support, driving her four times a week, to the Manchester Aces club (60 miles across the border). Noticing her talent, Manchester’s elite training hub Great Britain Taekwondo took Jones under its wings.
