Sotherton makes heptathlon return
Tuesday 25 October 2011
Kelly Sotherton has made a shock return to the heptathlon in a last-ditch bid to compete at the London Olympics.
The 34-year-old quit the event, in which she won Olympic bronze in 2004, last November to focus on the 400m. However, Sotherton failed to qualify for the World Championships in Daegu this summer and recently lost her lottery funding.
The 2007 world championship bronze medallist said: "I started training four weeks ago for the heptathlon. It has rejuvenated my feelings for the sport, I could be at the Olympics."
