Wales' Jade Jones' build-up to her Olympic gold medal defence has been boosted by an impressive victory in the -57kg final at the WTF World Grand Prix in Samsun,Turkey.

The 22-year-old, from Flint, defeated Taiwan's Yun-Wen Huang 6-3, to confirm her world No 1 spot.

I'm always aiming to be the best of the world and if I can put in a good performance in these events, it all helps for Rio.

'I want to be a legend' says Jade after gold win

Jade Jones blazed back from her World Championship heartache to grab Great Britain's third gold medal at the European Games in Baku on Wednesday night.

The 22-year-old from Flint kept her nerve to beat Croatia's Ana Zaninovic 12-9 just one month after a scoring malfunction cost her the chance to claim a place on the podium in Chelyabinsk.

Olympic champion Jones said she now wanted to go on to reach new heights in the sport.

I want to become a legend in my sport so I'm not done yet.

I was distraught after the worlds and I did really well just to get back into training. I wanted this so much and all I kept telling myself was that I do not want to lose again.

I'm not going to lie, I didn't fight at 100 per cent today. I've still got a lot more work to do but when I needed it I really pulled it out the bag.
