Olympic long jumper Jazmin Sawyers auditions on The Voice

Given that they haven’t usually clinched a record deal yet, talent show entrants tend to have a day job – but not many can claim they have competed at the Olympic Games.

Enter The Voice UK contestant Jazmin Sawyers, 22, who revealed on Saturday night’s show that she had represented Team GB at Rio 2016, placing a creditable eighth in the women’s long jump.

“I was annoyed at the time because I wanted more,” said Jazmin. “But eighth in the Olympics was a good result so for now I’ll take it.”

In her younger years, Jazmin has also competed in the high jump and heptathlon – often vying with fellow Rio star Katarina Johnson-Thompson – and even in the bobsleigh at the Youth Winter Olympics.
