British Taekwondo athlete and Olympic gold medallist, Jade Jones, made a special appearance at Sunspot Family Entertainment Centre on The Esplanade in Burnham-on-Sea at the weekend [Saturday 16th August], taking time out of her busy training schedule to meet with staff and customers.
The seaside family arcade, which is equipped with the latest pusher games and video slots along with top of the range racing games, is part of Cashino Gaming which is sponsoring Jade in her quest for Gold in the upcoming 2016 Olympics in Rio.
The sports star visited the centre to show her appreciation for their continued support, happily speaking with fans of all ages and giving them an opportunity to obtain autographs and take photos.
Commenting on the day, Jade said:
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Burnham-on-Sea; it really is a great family place. I feel humbled that so many people have turned up and it is fantastic to see youngsters with an interest in Taekwondo.
“The fans have given me some amazing words of encouragement that I will take with me and it is hearing this support that makes these visits a pleasure. I’ll certainly try my best to bring back another Gold medal, for everyone who has supported me, especially Cashino and all its venues.”
Simon Ainge, Cashino area manager added:
“It has been wonderful to have Jade along to Sunspot as it gives the local community a chance to get up close with one of British sport’s most respected young athletes.
“Jade is a tremendous talent and we’re so proud to be sponsoring her, she really does have our full support and we are confident she will do us proud once again.”
