Jo Jackson Olympics 2008

 

17 April 2009

In-form Olympian Johanna Jackson (Middlesbrough & Cleveland) will lead the Aviva Great Britain & Northern Ireland Team at the European Cup – Race Walking in France next month. The 24- year-old wintered well in Australia, where she twice set British 5000m records.

On returning home, she then put in a career-best performance as she defeated a strong international field to win the 20k at the Gran Premio Citta di Lugano in Switzerland in a new British record of 1:31:16, just one second shy of the A qualifying standard for August’s IAAF World Championships in Berlin.

She forms part of a seven-strong party of athletes in the GB & NI Team that will take part at the event on May 24.
