Additional information

ANTICIPATION
Relishing Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. "There are so many aspects of the event I am looking forward to. It’s going to be a completely unique experience to anything I’ve done before. Going all the way to Australia for one, then the multisport environment, and being Team England instead of Team GB. The atmosphere inside the stadiums during the competition will be a huge lift for all the athletes, and the weather will be amazing." (englandathletics.org, 8 Nov 2017)


TOUGH CALL
Won high jump and heptathlon at 2016 world junior championships but concentrated on high jump in 2017 and will compete in that event only at Gold Coast 2018. "I feel like high jump is my event at the moment and that is what I’m wanting to concentrate on. I’ve completely changed my training schedule. You could say it’s a gamble but I just want to see how far I can go with this. But that doesn’t mean I won’t return to the heptathlon." (englandathletics.org, 8 Nov 2017)
