- Jo Brigden-Jones was ranked the World Number Two K1 paddler before a serious shoulder injury disrupted her paddling and kept her sidelined for ten months (August 2010 - May 2011).
- Brigden-Jones returned to the kayak with gusto, finishing fourth in the K1 1000m at her first World Cup since returning from injury in Poland, and has never looked back.
- The Manly Warringah paddler joined forces with Hannah Davis, Lyndsie Fogarty and Rachell Lovell after the Australians tested different K4 combinations leading into the 2011 World Championships. After just four weeks together the powerful quartet won Australia's K4 quota place at the Games by placing fifth at the 2011 World Championships in Szeged, Hungary.
- Brigden-Jones is one of three Manly lifesavers representing Australia in kayak at the Olympics alongside Murray Stewart and Naomi Flood. She is also a registered nurse.
- The Sydney Northern Beaches Kayak Club discovered Brigden-Jones when she was 13-years-old through their Talent Identification Squad. The youngster had been involved in swimming, athletics, basketball and netball but her height and arm-span indicated her potential as a paddler. Brigden-Jones did not take to the sport immediately, and fell out of the boat many times before she began improving. Eleven years on she is embarking on her first Olympic campaign and still trains with the Club.
