Olympic heptathlon champion Nafissatou Thiam today confirmed that she will take on the pentathlon at next week’s European Athletics Indoor Championships which will be held in the Kombank Arena in Belgrade, Serbia from 3 – 5 March 2017.

After the incredible high of the Olympics and the many post-Games ceremonies, the 22-year-old went back into winter training with an open mind on whether or not she would want to compete indoors with the main objective for 2017 being the IAAF World Championships in London.

With recent personal best efforts in the shot put and the 60m hurdles, Nafi has shown to be in fine shape and has consequently decided to travel to Belgrade next week, with the pentathlon taking place on Friday 3 March.
