British-born heptathlete Katy Sealy, representing Belize, is leading all athletes in points in the haptathlon, after the first two days of competition in Nicaragua at the Central American Games.
After the first four events of the seven-event heptathlon, Sealy leads in every category. She leads with a total of 2831 points, combining her results in the 100 meter race, high jumps, shot put and the 200 meters race.
The competition wraps up on Sunday with the last three events of the heptathlon, the long jump, javelin throw and 800 meters. Sealy had previously told The Reporter she was confident heading into the event and expected to come away with either gold or silver.
On the first day of the event, on Friday, Sealy won the bronze medal in the individual shot put event. Following the Central American games, Sealy will represent Belize in the Pan American games in Canada in July and the North American, Central American and Caribbean (NACAC) games in Costa Rica in August.
