Katarina Johnson-Thompson to inspire youngsters at Birmingham Commonwealth Games

funetics is proud and excited to announce that our ambassador Katarina Johnson-Thompson will lead Team England’s athletics medal hopes at this summer’s Birmingham Commonwealth Games.

By attending the Games, Katarina will defend her Heptathlon gold medal that she won at the last Commonwealth Games at the Gold Coast (Australia) in 2018.

Katarina is an inspiration to our funetics children and we are so excited that these children - and for the children who will see her at the Games or on TV.

Katarina’s Heptathlon event takes place on 2nd and 3rd August at our home – Alexander Stadium.

funetics will also be live at the Games with activities that the Games visitors can take part in at the ‘Have-a-go’ zone.

And for the month of August, funetics will also be live throughout Birmingham with Holiday Camps that any local child can join. Visit our funetics Holiday Camps section for further details.


funetics is created by England Athletics to help 4-11 year old children across the country to learn, develop and practice running, jumping and throwing skills all year round, for a healthy confident future.
