Track and Field just announced a devastating news…….

Team GB medal hopeful Keely Hodgkinson reveals extravagant plan if she wins gold

When Keely Hodgkinson smashed the 25-year-old British 800m record to secure silver at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, the shock was etched across her face.

Just 19, she seemed to have the athletics world at her feet. But then came the crash, as her success plunged her into depression. How could she ever hit such heights again, she began thinking.

Well, after successive World silvers, winning gold in Paris this summer could be the answer. And the 22-year-old has already planned how she would celebrate taking the title – by buying her dream car, a beige Porsche.

Keely almost quit athletics aged 15 but was cajoled back on to the track by her dad Dean, and the promise of a new pair of snazzy shoes. And the Wigan-born track star admits she found the aftermath of her Tokyo breakthrough tough to deal with.

She says: “I didn’t realise how much the Olympic comedown was actually really a big thing. The best way I can explain it would be I was 19, I had such a big high. Did I think it was going to happen at 19? Absolutely not. But it just kind of did.
