Track and field has opened some incredible doors for me... many that I didn’t see coming and this is definitely one of them! So proud to be on the cover of @BritishVogue’s August digital issue 🤩
Definitely a pinch me moment… even as I’m writing this now. And best of all I’m so happy to have been captured accurately - showcasing my muscles, strength and power!!
There is nowhere that sportswomen do not belong. We are limitless, our potential knows no bounds and there is no glass ceiling ✨
Thank you @Edward_Enninful, @CharlotteMWales and @PoppyKain for your vision and time spent with me.
Thank you so much to the whole British Vogue team - especially the styling team allowing me to live out my fashion fantasies over the couple of days that we shot this! 😍✨

Trials make-up photo dump 🤪
Two days, two looks + two opportunities to see how they came out IRL! Dry run complete… next step is to make sure they hold in the Tokyo humidity… 😅
Make-up inspirations added on at the end xx
Officially made my second Olympic team 🙏🏾🥰
It’s always an incredible feeling to have been selected for a major Champs but the Olympics is just that little bit more special 🤩
Olympic Trials week. Inching closer to the business end of the season ✨
No prisoners 😤
do you know how happy I am that this pony didn’t fly off mid race lmaooo 😅🤣🙏🏾
And here’s last nights race!!
Really happy with this run - especially the last 50. We’ve worked hard on that part + it’s great to see it play out in competition. Can’t wait to run another 2! I feel like we have some more in there ✨
22.06 to win the #FlorenceDL ✨🥇
My fastest ever time outside a major Championships and the 3rd fastest time of my career 😍😍 all heading in the right direction woo hoo xxx
Feeling fierce with this ponytail 😝
Took the win today in Hengelo ✨♥️
Ran 10.92 - a new meeting record! Happy, healthy and loved competing at such a great meet. Thanks for having us @fbkgames 🚀
On Sunday we go again 🚀
Really excited to be heading to the Netherlands for the FBK Games in Hengelo! The last time I ran there I was 19 and broke the British 100m record for the first time ✨
I have great memories of this meet and can’t wait to go back. It was nice and sunny last time too - praying for more of that and no gale force winds lol.
Hope you’re all well, sending loads of love ♥️
George Floyd was murdered a year ago today. Thankfully Chauvin was found guilty. Hopefully this marks a turning point for racial justice and holding perpetrators of police brutality accountable. Time will tell.
But here, Black people are still being gaslit with the Sewell Report implying that institutional racism doesn’t even exist, despite our own experiences directly contradicting that. Footballers are still being racially abused on social media. And we are banned by the IOC from even being able to express our hurt, frustration and outrage at racism, racist violence + racial inequality 🤨
Whilst it’s been good to see so many more people become engaged and have their eyes opened to inequalities that we face, there is clearly still a way to go.
We need to keep pushing - using our voices, dismantling barriers, destroying stereotypes, taking up space and continuing to be our most vibrant, unapologetic selves at all times.
And here’s the race!
Running into a -3.1 wind is no joke 🥵 might as well have been a brick wall lmao
But hey 😅 I’m happy to have put together a technically good race despite the North East throwing everything it had at us 🤣
It feels so good to be back racing again!!! #FreeShowerAnyone#GatesheadDL
Took the win!!!
Over the moon to have won the Gateshead DL in less than ideal conditions lol. Thank you for all the support... way to kickstart the season ☔️😝♥️
