TOPICS:

Katharine is a rare Athlete that had outstanding success at both junior and senior level Athletics. Having been the fastest girl in the world aged 14, 12 years later she became the fastest woman in the world over 400m.

Aged just 12, she was ranked number one in 7 different events in the UK age group rankings and, when concentrating on sprinting at 14, she ran a stunning 7.35s indoors for the 60m, becoming the fastest girl in the world ever over the distance – a record that she still holds today.

Katharine is an extremely exciting and proficient Live Events Presenter and has hosted major Athletics events and Championships here in the UK, Europe and America. This role is often extended to include live trackside interviews with Athletes as they finish their competition, which in 2014 included the inaugural “Invictus Games”, when Prince Harry personally thanked her for helping to make the Event such as huge success.

Her near 30 years of experience at the highest levels of Athletics, both on and off the track, make her story one of goal setting, motivating a high-performance team, persistence and making the right decisions when it comes to career defining moments.
