Jo Jackson

14 April 2010

UKA today announced Jo Jackson (Andi Drake/Maureen Jackson) has been selected to represent the Aviva Great Britain and Northern Ireland team at the IAAF Race Walking World Cup to be held in Chihuahua, Mexico on the 15-16 May 2010.       

National record holder Jackson was selected for the 20k distance following her international standard performance of 92:37 in Lugano, Switzerland in March 2010 and a convincing win at the World trials and UK Championships held in Victoria Park, London on Sunday 11 April.

Despite being ill during the race, Jackson stormed to victory in the capital city in 99:14 with over six minutes to spare over Niobe Menedez (Steyning) in second in 105:45 and Fiona McGorum (Leicester) in 113:06.
