Katy captured the gold in the heptathlon for Belize for the third consecutive year; she improved in her National Record and also broke the Central American Championships Record. “I was really pleased with my performances in all seven events which make up the heptathlon, showing significant improvement on last year,” commented Kathy in one of her Facebook profile posts.
“My next aim for the heptathlon is to break 5000 points and win Gold for Belize in the Central American Games next year. I am now in Belize looking forward to a couple of days rest and recovery before I get back to training for the rest of the season. I would like to thank the Belize Olympic Committee and Athletic Association for their continued support and also to all Belizean's who have sent me fantastic messages of encouragement and congratulations.”
Sealy is from England, but she has decided to represent Belize in her sporting competitions for the love of the country. Katy explains that her grandfather lived and worked in Dangriga, Stann Creek, Belize and that her father was born there and lived in Pomona before moving to the United Kingdom. Her father married an English woman and she was born in England, however she has dual nationality, holding both Belize and UK passports.
