Katarina Johnson-Thompson on Jodie Comer, sacrifices, and the south of France

Once the oompah band pack away the brass, the beer taps stop flowing and hordes of excited schoolchildren head to bed, a tent appears on the Mosle Stadium infield in Austria.

A banquet is laid out inside and, in front of empty stands and the looming Alps beyond, the world’s best multi-eventers celebrate the end of the fabled Hypo-Meeting in Gotzis after completing two days of competition.

“There is a big dinner with music and food and you can watch the sun setting on the track,” Katarina Johnson-Thompson tells BBC Sport.

In May, the Briton won the heptathlon, racking up her best-ever score and finishing well clear of a field that included world silver medallist Carolin Schafer.

But there was little time for Johnson-Thompson to sip sundowners and shoot the breeze.
