Katarina Johnson-Thompson is on the way to becoming one of the world’s greatest ever athletes.
KJT has established herself as the best all-around athlete on the planet.
Recent years have seen KJT crowned champion at significant events, including:
- Heptathlon Champion at the 2019 World Athletics Championships
- Pentathlon Champion at the 2018 World Indoor Championships
- Heptathlon Champion at the 2018 Commonwealth Games
- Heptathlon Silver Medalist at the 2018 European Championships
- Pentathlon Champion 2019 European Indoor Championships
At the 2019 World Indoor Championships, her Gold medal performance set a new British Heptathlon Record and placed her 4th on the all-time list.
Considered the 9th most marketable sportsperson on the planet, labelled as ‘The Future of Athletics‘, and with a natural flair both on and off track that endears her to many, Katarina is the world’s next global sporting icon. She can already claim to be the country’s greatest ever Heptathlete, Pentathlete and High Jumper after holding national records in all three events.
KJT, as she is known, says that she got into the sport as she “wanted to try everything”.
Her talent was evident from an early age when, aged 11, she joined in on a school sports day which resulted in her setting a new high jump record. From there, she has grown into a World Junior Champion, European Champion, Commonwealth Champion, World Champion and national record holder with one title left to obtain – the Olympics.
Topping the World Rankings at just 21, KJT has overcome multiple high-profiled setbacks in her career but is now en route to re-writing all record books with Jackie Joyner-Kersee (voted Sports Illustrated’s best female athlete of the 20th century) tipping KJT to break her long-standing world record and dominate sport years to come.
