The Heptathlon Competition started out on Tuesday, July 29, with four of the seven events in this discipline. In the 100m Hurdles competition, Sealy set a new Personal Best when she finished the course in a time of 15.61. In the High Jump competition she also set a new Personal Best with a height clearance of 1.69m. She also competed in the 200m event and the Shot Put competition.

On Wednesday, July 30, Sealy set yet another Personal Best in the Long Jump competition at 5.36m.

Katy Sealy concluded her Heptathlon Competition with a cumulative score of 4661 points, which placed her ninth in the overall standings in the competition. Sealy’s total points at these Games are better than the total points she gained when she captured the Gold Medal in the Central American Senior Championship held in Honduras a couple weeks ago.

Katy Sealy did not win a medal in the Commonwealth Games, but setting three new Personal Best and a new National Record is indeed a personal feat.
