In 2012, Jon was selected to carry the Olympic Torch at the London 2012 Olympics. This honour came after he was nominated due to his work with young people, both in schools and through his sports coaching in the local community. Since carrying the torch, Jon has delivered lessons all over the world on the Olympic Torch, spreading the Olympic message via Skype to schools in 15 different states in America, as well as Australia, New Zealand, India, Pakistan and France.
