Results

The final results for the heptathlon were:

Hazel (ENG) 1st 6156
Zelinka (CAN) 2nd 6100
Clements (ENG) 3rd 5819

It was really, really tough to watch the 800m and see the final medalist's scores were well within my reach, with both silver and bronze being less than my personal best.

I was comforted by the fact that I wasn't the only one to not complete the event, and my heart goes out to the other 4 girls that had to pull out too, I know how they feel!

I am heading back to NZ today, much as I would love to stay in Delhi and cheer on the rest of the team, hobbling around on crutches isn't great so we decided it was best to get back home.

Thanks for all your messages of support over the past days.

  1. Hi Becky, so gutted to see injury strike you at the most inopportune time. Sport really can be a brutally cruel profession sometimes. What an amazing effort though to not only get to the games but to be looking in such awesome form. Scant consolation I know but it really is an achievement well beyond us mere mortals and super impressive. Good luck with your recovery and whatever move you make from here. Have a safe flight home. Cheers. Scott
