Katarina Johnson-Thompson is satisfied with her performance at the Rio Olympics but admits coming home from the Rio Olympics without a medal is "a missed opportunity".
Johnson-Thompson finished sixth in the women's heptathlon, as Belgium's Nafissatou Thiam was crowned Olympic champion with Jessica Ennis-Hill winning silver.
"I'm happy with my performance - I couldn't have done any more. I wanted to walk away from the track knowing I gave it my all and that's what I did," Johnson-Thompson told Tuesday's Sportswomen on Sky Sports News HQ.
"I always said I wanted an Olympic medal. It's the pinnacle of any athlete's career.
"When you see all the medals won by Team GB, you can just see how much it means to each and every athlete so it just feel like it's a little bit of a missed opportunity - but I'm only 23. I have just got to get on now and keep going.
"I'm more motivated than ever. I've always known that Rio and Tokyo are my two Olympics. Now that Rio hasn't gone to plan, Tokyo has to work and I'm more motivated than ever."
Johnson-Thompson broke the British high jump record during the heptathlon, clearing 1.98m, which would have been enough to win gold in the women's individual competition.
"It felt amazing," she added.
"I broke it indoors two years ago now and I've never really jumped outdoors, so to finally do it outside - and in a heptathlon when I needed those points - was just what I wanted."
