Jaco got an overall silver for Team GB at the Newport International this weekend. Louis Rolfe, Jaco and Jon Gildea pushed world champions Spain hard but had to settle for silver, exactly one second slower than the world record holder’s time of 51.896 seconds. A great result for Team GB. Jaco also managed to get personal bests in all of his races, a fantastic achievement. 

After his amazing performance at the Newport Internationals, Jaco has now been selected for the World Championships in Holland. 

The full team has been announced here:
