Notes:
Jon Schofield is a Men's K2 200m sprint kayaker and has been selected for Team GB at London 2012.
Before his canoe sprint career, Jon was a very successful wild water canoeing athlete, winning the Junior World Championships in 2002 and the Senior European title in 2007.
In 2007 Jon changed canoeing disciplines to become a sprint kayaker and success came instantly. The change to the Olympic distance from 500m to 200m in 2009 has suited Jon, and he is now part of a successful partnership with Liam Heath, under the guidance of coach Alex Nikonorov.
In 2010 Jon was crowned European Champion in the K2 200m, and with his partner Liam Heath they went on to take the bronze medal at the World Championships. They went one better in 2011 winning silver at the World Championships and now have the ultimate goal of becoming Olympic champions.

Jon graduated in 2010 from Loughborough University with a degree in Human Biology.
