Joanne Jackson Torso

After making her Olympic debut as a 17-year old at the 2004 Games in Athens, Jo Jackson quickly established herself as a major force in international swimming, winning European and Commonwealth silver medals for the 400m Freestyle in 2006.

Jackson continued her progression to the biggest stage in 2008, scooping 400m bronze in the Water Cube at the Olympic Games in Beijing.

A year later, Jackson's lightning-fast form rolled on as she set a 400m Freestyle world record at the British Championships in March before clinching 400m and 800m Freestyle silvers at the 2009 World Championships in Rome.
