Huge congratulation to Kat who has won her first senior global gold medal. Kat started the with the 60mH in 8.36 which put her outside the medal positions, but a 1.91m HJ and an indoor PB of 12.68m in the shot propelled her up to second at the mid session interval.
A 6.50m Long Jump propelled Kat into the lead and then came through on the last lap in the 800m to win the final event in 2:16.63
