Katarina Says

My nickname is...

Kat or KJT.

My good-luck charm is...

writing in my competition journal and looking back at old entries; it gets me in the right frame of mind.

I’m inspired by...

Carolina Kluft, the queen of the heptathlon.

On my day off...

I spend time with my two miniature dachshunds.

In my bag...

I always have my Nike Thermo handwarmer, spare hair elastics and hand sanitizer.

My favorite meal is...

lasagna and garlic bread.

I want my legacy to be...

that I helped elevate the reputation of the heptathlon.
