Jess has a great story as BBC Sport published in 2020 “Jess Learmonth: From supermarket worker to Olympic medal hopeful” in 2019 Jess and British compatriot Georgia Taylor-Brown took line honours in the 2019 Tokyo Olympic Triathlon test event, however, were controversially disqualified under a technicality when they cross the line hand in hand. That performance amongst many others, really puts Jess in the medal mix for Tokyo 2021 the Olympic Games.
Jess burst onto the elite triathlon scene in 2016, with a first European Cup win, before going on to finish in the Top 10 at the World Triathlon series Leeds event a few months later in front of her hometown fans. Jess collected the silver medal in the overall World Triathlon series rankings for 2019, collected silver at the 2018 Commonwealth Games held here on the Gold Coast and also silver in the mix teams relay with Great Britain and having recently been named in the Great British team for the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games. Jess is a name in the sport to certainly watch.
