Someone (it was me) suggested to someone else there's no Kelly Sotherton fan page on the web... Word gave word and within minutes this became the first website dedicated to this gorgeous British heptathlete.

Welcome to Kelly Sotherton Unofficial Fanpage

There will be no more updates of this page, sorry. Wish you all the best, Kelly!

Kelly fourth at Beijing Olympics, 15 & 16 August 2008

Kelly had a good start to the pentathlon event winning the 60m hurdles with 8.25. She jumped 1.81 high, with Tia Hellebaut marking 1.99 in her specialty event and moving to the lead. After scoring personal best 14.57 in shot put, Kelly beat Tia in the long jump by four centimeters with 6.45 and was 107 points behing with final 800m to go. 2:09.95 was a new personal best, but was just short as Tia managed a season's best 2:16.42 to win the competition for Belgium in the absence of reigning queen Carolina Klüft with 4867 points, 15 ahead of Kelly's 4852. Anna Bogdanova of Russia was third with 4753.

After a slightly disappointing long-jump start to a three-event indoor challenge, Kelly recovered with superb performances. 8.17 is her new personal best in 60m hurdles and put her to third place behind Carolina Klüft and Denisa Ščerbová of the Czech republic. Then, with this year's british fastest 400m (52.47) she moved up again and finish second to Carolina overall. Denisa kept the third spot.

Kelly took fantastic bronze medal at Osaka 2007 World Championships Heptathlon! Congratulations!
