    This PDF resource includes an article about a heptathlon athlete and her long road to her recent gold medal win, as well as accompanying activity ideas:

    • Discuss whether we should always follow our dreams like Katarina Johnson-Thompson, or whether sometimes it’s better to concede defeat and move on.
    • Write a story about an occasion where you showed grit and determination and how you felt during the highs and lows.
    • Write a short play script about a devil and angel on Katarina’s shoulders and what they might have said to persuade her to give up or carry on.
    • Explore what a decathlon is, and what people who take part have to do.
