Karate Kid Jordan Thomas using Salsa and Ballet to Boost 2020 Olympic Gold hopes for Team GB 28th March 2018
“NOT MANY karate champions would admit to being a ballroom dance star in their spare time but Euro and world champ Jordan Thomas is not like many people.” "The 26-year-old 2020 Olympic hopeful chose his exclusive SunSport interview to reveal he was running the risk of adding ‘Billy Elliot’ to his long-standing ‘Karate Kid’ nickname."
“Jonathan Cockcroft, Commercial Director at England and Great Britain Hockey, said: “It is fantastic to be able to continue our partnership with OPRO. With a mouthguard being such a crucial piece of equipment for all hockey players in our sport we are glad to be working with the leading manufacturer in the market.”
“OPRO has announced the renewal of their partnership with England and GB Hockey until 2021. As part of the agreement, OPRO will supply mouthguards to the men’s and women’s Under 16s, Under 18s, Under 21s, and Senior Squads. ”
“Alongside Great Britain Women’s Hockey Olympic gold medallist, Shona McCallin, the deal will see Danielle and Jordan promoting the benefits and safety of using mouthguards while inspiring others to get involved in their respective sports.”
“OPRO has announced the signings of England women’s rugby player, Danielle Waterman (pictured above, central), and British karate world champion, Jordan Thomas, as brand ambassadors.”
“Mouthguards…I think you’re either for them or not. Science would tell us they “Act like a shock absorber, both spreading the force over a larger area and increasing the time for the peak force to occur. Dissipating the energy of the blow over a larger area and longer time reduces its effect preventing or vastly reducing any injury”. Or basically…you’re less likely to get your teeth knocked out.”
