Katarina JOHNSON-THOMPSON - silver

On winning silver:

"I gave it my all in this last event (800m), so I'm very happy. It was a very hard competition. To be honest, I left it all on the track, but I'm not easily intimidated. I know I can win.

On how she started competing at heptathlon:

"When I started competing in the high jump, I also had to go to sprinting sessions. One of my coaches challenged me to try the long jump, and, soon, I started running from one event to another during the same competition."
