funetics congratulates ambassador Katarina Johnson-Thompson

During a spectacular second night of athletics at the Alexander Stadium, funetics ambassador Katarina Johnson-Thompson successfully defended her Commonwealth heptathlon title.

Earlier on in the day, after her impressive morning performance, children and young people came by the funetics HaveAGo zone in the stadium concourse, marvelling on her skills while they attempted a series of run, jump and throw activities for themselves.

After the close of day two, over 1500 children were inspired to take part in the HaveAGo zone, creating a buzz that today will no doubt be elevated by Katarina’s success.
