Katarina Johnson-Thompson

Season 1, Ep. 2

22 Voices is a new podcast series brought to you by the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games, telling the stories of sporting stars and cultural trailblazers as the countdown to the Games continues.


Our guest today needs just three letters by way of introduction – KJT. Katarina Johnson-Thompson has become a household name as a world-beating heptathlete, continuing a golden legacy started by Denise Lewis and Jessica Ennis Hill.


In this episode, KJT talks about recovering well from injury, her hopes for the Tokyo Olympics, how many more years she plans to compete for, why she moved to France, her fond memories of competing in Birmingham (and the night out she had there after winning world indoor gold in 2018!), and looking forward to competing in front of home crowds - and a full stadium - at the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
