The Isle of Wight’s Kelly Sotherton has been talking about her plans to make the next Commonwealth Games as successful as possible.
The 3-time Olympic medallist has been appointed as England’s athletics team leader for the competition in Birmingham in 2 years time.
Kelly won the Games in 2006 and believes it can be a springboard for the career of young athletes, just like it was for her.
Speaking to Alex Seftel of the England Athletics Podcast, Kelly said:
“My aim is to make this Games the most successful for athletics, but also to do it in the best way…I want everyone to come away with an experience – that they really enjoyed it – whether they won or lost”.
