World Athletics: one to watch – Jo Jackson

British athletes at the IAAF World Championships: 20km race walker Jo Jackson, Wednesday 31 August

Wake up to find out if Britain’s Jo Jackson has scooped a medal in the 20km race walk. While the other athletes got the day off, the women’s race walkers took to the streets of Daegu, from 2am this morning.


At 26, Commonwealth champion Jackson is the first British woman to win a major walking title. Race walking requires the athletes to keep one foot on the floor at all times; three warnings and a walker will be disqualified.
