Holly Bleasdale: Looks like she has never been away since returning from injury

Holly Bleasdale has the chance to put a year marred by injury well and truly behind her this Sunday.

Even at just 22-years-old, Bleasdale is no stranger to major championships and believes that after tasting victory at the European Indoors last year she is now hungrier than ever to succeed. "That was massive, it was my first senior title," she recalled. "It was great standing at the top of the podium, hearing the national anthem and knowing I was the best in Europe on that day. "I craved that feeling again which is really motivating me to go there in Poland in the World Indoors and keep competing at my best. I'm driven to get that feeling again. That's what I'm going there aiming for." There are no guarantees, of course, but with her injury troubles behind her and the Commonwealth Games and European Championships in the summer, Bleasdale will hope that this year a major indoor championship medal can signal just the beginning for her, rather than the end.
