Jade Jones-Hall is one of the most exciting talents in British Paralympic sport. A recent Gold medalist at the Commonwealth Games, Jade is an extremely self-assured and ambitious athlete who speaks with great confidence to audiences on topics including; overcoming obstacles, goal setting and team building.
Having made her debut in the 400m, 800m and 1500m at London 2012, Jade 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 in the bag at the World Paratriathlon Championships in 2017, Jade went on to secure paratriathlon gold and marathon bronze at the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.
Jade 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, Jade was shortlisted for BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year amd has commentated for Channel 4 during the IPC World Championships. Jade is currently juggling her training with studying for a law degree.
Jade is a confident speaker when addressing audiences on topics including; Overcoming obstables, goal setting, using determination and applying attitude and confidence to achieve success, and team building.
