But this video shows, if anything, that she has her sights set high on picking up further championship medals.
Dan McCarthy shared the footage on his Facebook page, which shows Jodie in training mode, pounding meat at the butchers, lifting kettle bells, doing chin ups and more.
It’s hard to believe that Jodie is just nine years old.
