Hypo Meeting – Götzis

On Sunday Katarina Johnson-Thompson won the prestigious Götzis Combined Events Title at the Hypo Meeting in the Mösle stadium, Austria.

She was in 2nd place after day one, 15 points behind world silver medallist Brianne Theisen-Eaton after four of the seven events but after the final day she took the title with a new personal best and club record scoring an amazing 6682 points which places her 3rd on the British All Time list. The stand out performance over the two days being the 200m where she ran a PB of 22.89s, just shy of the club record held by Anyika Onuora.

Kat’s score is not only a 2014 world lead, but the best Heptathlon score in the world since Jessica Ennis’ London Olympic gold in 2012. Kat beat all the current world’s best including the silver and bronze winners from the 2013 Moscow World Championships and the winner of the 2014 Indoor World Championships where Kat had to only compete in the Long Jump because she fell ill when trying to qualify for the Pentathlon.

Well done Kat. Results are on Power of Ten.
