Morgan LAKE - Great Britain - 6th at 2017 World Championships high jump.

two attempts to do so. Katrina took just one. Both failed 1.97 three times.

Morgan won the 2014 World Junior Championship in the event (1.93m) and the Heptathlon
title at the same Championships.  In 2015 she was the European Junior high jump champion


2017 World Athletics Championship. London Olympic Stadium,
