CLAIMED her first senior global title by winning the pentathlon at the world indoor championships in Birmingham and followed that up by taking Commonwealth heptathlon gold in Australia just six weeks later. The multi-events talent also finished fifth at the world championships in London in both the heptathlon and high jump and placed sixth in the seven-discipline event in Rio.

SECURED double success at the 2014 world under-20 championships in Oregon, winning both the heptathlon and the high jump, and has since switched her focus to the single discipline, although admits she’d like to give the heptathlon “one last shot” sometime in the future.
