6:55 pm
maintain our title into the same. but it looks like our league might not resume, so we willjust need to wait and see that one unfolds. our goal is to get into the scottish week no question about it. aha, week no question about it. a fantastic result i say, good luck in the next round, very many thanks indeed for some kata read it catherinejohnson... the heptathlon world champion has been speaking to sally nugent about her olympic hopes and also an acadamy that she has set up to help young athletes whose careers are at risk of stalling. sport shouldn't be based on anything but talent. it shouldn't be based on what you look like, what circumstances you've got, how much money you've got. for me, sport, in its essence, is literally who can run the fastest from that line to that line. let me see if i can beat you. ultimately, i'm just a big kid still doing that on an olympic stage! so, kat, we're back where it all began —
6:56 pm
we're in your home town. what's it like to be back here? it's really strange, especially to be, you know, on a quiet track. normally this truck is, like, booming with young athletes, like, coaches. this time of year, like, we're heading into the spring, which is the summer season, yeah, and this is where we normally get our hard training in. windy wavertree — staying true to its name, windy wavertree, today. when i look at social media and i see you and your contemporaries — i'm thinking particularly at the moment of dina asher—smith — posting training pictures in, like, the most phenomenalform of your lives... do you think things have changed because now perhaps young athletes coming through can look at you and think, "well, actually, that's how i want to look"? i do try and post, like, me in the full sort of glory, like when i'm competing and stuff. like, there used to be a time when i was maybe early 20s where i would look for pictures where i was less muscly and i wouldn't want to upload them. and, you know, you want to be...
6:57 pm
you want to ultimately look feminine, but strong can be feminine. how have you managed to cope with the delay in the olympics? the last four years i think... i have been building momentum and that ultimately came to its peak in doha. katarina johnson—thompson of liverpool — she's the world champion. and i thought i was ready to give more, going into tokyo, which was always the plan. and it's literally got halted and... but that is life. i had no sort of control over a pandemic. there's going to be so many people who would have been olympic champion, who isn't going to be olympic champion because of this pandemic and i find that fascinating. i think the olympics will be won and lost on whoever�*s handled the pandemic the best. even with the delay and the difficulties of the last year, what's it like going into an olympic games as world champion in your event? for me, knowing that, you know, for a number of years, i didn't think that i could ever win on that sort of global world
6:58 pm
champion, championship stage. ijust know that it's possible now so i'm happy that if it's happened before, it can happen again. and that's what — you know, that's my sort of beliefs, you know. i know there's a strong chance that i could be outperformed but as long as i do my best, you know, i have no regrets. katerina johnson thompson. all the pull up to wales in belgium, world cup qualifying coming up on a five live support from turkey have beaten at the men's 11—2 in their world cup qualifying opener. for me and the rest of the team, goodbye. good evening it was a story of scattered showers, and take a buy one for what the watchers and devon we had showers around and in
