KJT, the current World Champion, has already established herself as one of the greatest ever all-round athletes. An international honours list that includes being a two-time World Champion, two-time Commonwealth Champion, a World Indoor Champion, a two-time European Indoor Champion, a World Junior Champion as well as currently holding the national records in both the Heptathlon and Pentathlon, Katarina is a global sporting icon and has just one title left to obtain – the Olympics – to complete the set of a most glittering career to date.


Ranked the World’s number 1 athlete, considered the UK’s most popular contemporary and most famous sportswomen, and with a natural flair both on and off track that endears her to many, KJT epitomises a British never-give-up spirit. Having overcome adversity and achieved the seemingly impossible on many occasions, KJT did so once again at the 2023 World Athletics Championships where just two years on from an Achillies rupture that many thought would be a career-ending injury, she somehow managed to produce a scintillating performance over 2 days to win gold and reign supreme once again.


Known for her indecisiveness, KJT got into the sport because she “wanted to try everything” but her talent was obvious from an early age. Aged 11, she was encouraged to try the high jump for the first time at her school sports day which resulted in her setting a new school record and the records have been tumbling ever since. Ranked the World’s best athlete at just 21, KJT has enjoyed some remarkable successes and overcome multiple high-profiled setbacks throughout her career and is now en route to re-writing all record books with Jackie Joyner-Kersee (voted Sports Illustrated best female athlete of the 20th century) tipping KJT to break her long-standing world record and dominate sport years to come.
