There’s not long to go before Rio 2016, when Jess will be hoping to defend her Olympic heptathlon title. She’s already got months of hard work under her belt, but as the tournament approaches, she can’t afford to take her eyes off the prize.
Creator of Speed
The adidas Creators of Speed campaign has put some of the country’s greatest sporting stars in the spotlight, as they explain what encourages them to strive to be the best. Joining the likes of Laura Trott, Ellie Simmonds and Morgan Brian, Jess has starred in a video to reveal more about what drives her to succeed – and she can’t wait for all her fans to see it.
For Jess, achieving the fastest speeds possible is all about setting goals and doing whatever is necessary to push herself that little bit further.
“You always have that motivation of wanting to better what you’ve done; run a little bit faster, jump a little bit higher,” says Jess.
To find out more about what has made Jess the champion she is today, take a look at her video in the video gallery.
