Carolina in javelin action
Carolina loves the variety of events in heptathlon


If you like competing in many different events, heptathlon is the sport for you.

If you only like one event you should put everything into that.

The most important thing is to do what you feel is right for you and what you find most enjoyable.

Ask yourself: 'What do I like'? and then do that sport.

Whatever you do, keep smiling!

I love to do many events - I think it's so much fun.

I love to be out there competing and I want to show everybody how much fun it is.

I don't think I have to do it because I'm a star. I'm not a star, I'm just an ordinary person who wants to do something because I think it's fun.

I'm very ambitious but I try to think about one year at a time, so right now I've got this summer on my mind.

Everyone suffers disappointments in their career but you shouldn't let them get you down.

I try not to look back - I just think about the future and what I want to do.

Of course you have bad competitions, but you just have to learn from them.

It's all good experience and you'll benefit from it as you go on in life.




Meet Carolina
Sporting family
A friendly rival
Enjoy yourself!
