Keely Hodgkinson is set to return to the scene of her brilliant British Indoor 800m record next year when she lines up in the Birmingham World Indoor Tour Final at the Utilita Arena on Saturday 25 February.
The 20-year-old World, Olympic and Commonwealth 800m silver medallist, European Champion and British record holder both indoors and outdoors, smashed the British Indoor 800m record at the 2022 event clocking 1:57.20, the fastest time indoors for 20 years.
With the 2022 indoor season setting Hodgkinson up for a summer of medal success at Worlds, Commonwealths and Europeans, the Leigh Harrier will line up against some of the best in the world at the fixture wanting a similar springboard to success for 2023.
Hodgkinson said: “The Indoor Grand Prix earlier this year was an incredible experience as it was one of the first big crowd atmospheres I had experienced coming out of the pandemic. I’ve no doubt the atmosphere at the Arena, with that amazing crowd played a big part in helping me run fast and I can’t wait to feel that support again.
“I’ve got high expectations for what I want to achieve in 2023 and I know that starting off strongly with a great indoor season will really get the ball rolling on a strong year.”
