First World Games Medallist in 12 years for Great Britain Karate

Words do not describe how happy I was to have earned the right to attend the World Games and be in a position to contend for my second world title in less than a year. The World Games only come around once every 4 years - I was honoured to be competing for Great Britain after learning the last medallist of this historic multi event was Tania Weekes back in 2005.

It felt strange going to the Games with just my Coach Paul Newby as we are used to travelling with a national squad however, the whole experience itself was amazing and one I will never forget. I am grateful, I not only witnessed but, took part in a multi sporting event ahead of Tokyo 2020 – It was the perfect preparation.

Jordan Thomas World & European Champion

I returned from the World Games with a Silver Medal having lost on a refereeing decision to France. Two world finals in nine months is not too bad, right? This medal, and being in touching distance to another gold, has simply created more fire in my stomach to pursue my Olympic Dream.

Thank you to everybody who continues to help, support and follow me on my journey to the Olympics – stay with me... I know its going to be a good one!

World & European Champion
