The exciting young athlete produced a personal best of 8.18 seconds in the 60m hurdles, before clearing 1.95m in the high jump. She threw 12.35m in the shot put, before a 6.89m leap clinched the long jump and extended her lead.
She finished with an 800m time of two minutes, 12.78 seconds to complete her record, previously held by Jessica Ennis-Hill. The Olympic Gold medalist said on Twitter: “Well done Kat! Amazing performance! Sad to see my record go but couldn’t have gone to a more deserving athlete!”
Johnson-Thompson was only the second athlete to surpass the 5000-point mark in pentathlon history. However, her tally was still behind the world record of 5013, held by Ukrainian Nataliya Dobrynska.
