Track Beauty of the Week: Kelly Sotherton

Kelly Sotherton is this week’s Track Beauty!

It’s a good thing to note that before the emergence of Jess Ennis, Sotherton was the UK’s top heptathlete, having won a surprise 2004 Athens Bronze and a 2007 Osaka World Championships Bronze. Sotherton could have churned in better performances, if not for her below-par javelin throws.

Since 2009, Sotherton has been plagued with injury. With Ennis on the rise, the erstwhile Queen of British Multi-events has been relegated to the sidelines. Don’t count her out just yet. – I’m not! She’s still targeting London 2012 despite her advanced age by then (36).
