Our taekwondo superstars

Jade Jones and Lutalo Muhammad both have their sights set on gold at Tokyo 2020. For Jade, it will be 3 in a row. For Lutalo, it will be the missing gold.

Britain’s No.1 climber

“Climbing is a natural thing to do” says Runcorn’s Shauna Coxsey, who is best known for winning the IFSC Sports Climbing World Cup in 2016 and 2017.

  • Shauna Coxsey
  • This petite 26-year-old is hoping to ascend to Olympic heights when climbing debuts at Tokyo 2020. The competition combines 3 disciplines – bouldering (climbing without ropes), speed and lead. She reflects: “It’s just so exciting to be part of history.”

The Brownlees. 3 events, 2 men.

Alistair and Jonny Brownlee captured not only the Olympic triathlon gold and silver medals, but also the hearts of the nation, in Rio 2016. Legends of the road, bike and water, Alistair now holds 2 Olympic gold medals from London 2012 and Rio 2016, Jonny the bronze and silver.

Homegrown in Leeds

10m diving sensation Lois Toulson, 20 and world-class gymnast Nile Wilson, 23, have a lot of things in common. They are both at the top of a sport that requires precision, strength and flexibility. They are also both Homegrown Heroes from Leeds.

Britain’s track queen

Katie is a force to be reckoned with in the cycling world. She has dominated the Madison event since it was introduced to the women’s program in 2017 and holds the title of World Champion 2018-2019.

  • Katie Archibald
  • With her eyes firmly on Olympic gold in Tokyo 2020, Katie Archibald will be looking to qualify for 3 Olympic endurance events, including the team pursuit and the omnium. "Cycling", she says, "is more than a sport. It's an escape."
