Here is plenty she would love to consign to history after two years she describes as the “toughest of my life”. That was still a huge way off challenging her British record of 6,981, but enough to see off Kate O’Connor, of Northern Ireland, who dashed pre-event hopes of an English clean sweep to take silver with 6,233. England’s Jade O’Dowda scored 6,212 for bronze, with compatriot Holly Mills finishing fourth. She continues to make progress though and, right now, that is all she can ask for. When she completed her first heptathlon for three years in May she managed a points tally of 6,174. At last month’s World Championships, she relinquished her title with a score of 6,222 to finish eighth.
