University of Bath student Katrina Hart added a third medal to her haul by
taking bronze at the IPC World Athletics Championships in New Zealand today
The 20-year-old Sports Performance student took bronze for Great Britain in
the T37 100m final in Christchurch in a personal best time of 14.26 seconds.
³I wish the race was 80m,² said Hart. ³I thought I was going great but it
just started to fall apart at the point where I¹m usually strongest. I won
gold in the 200m but I prefer the 100m because I like to blow everyone away.
It just didn¹t happen today.²
Today¹s medal followed the gold she won in the T37 200m on Sunday and the
bronze she took in the T35-38 4x100m on Monday.
The 100m final was won by 200m bronze medallist Viktoriya Kravchenko of the
Ukraine in 14.21 with Germany¹s Maria Seifert second in 14.24.
It¹s been a terrific few months for Hart, who also won gold for England in
the T37 100m at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi in October.
It takes the tally achieved by University of Bath-based athletes coached by
Rob Ellchuk to five medals at the World Championships so far. For further
