Born to be a track-and-field star, Morgan Lake started her promising athletics career at only 5 years old. By the age of 7, encouraged by her father Eldon, she began competing and it wasn’t long before she was racking up history-making victories.
At 12, Morgan took part in her first Pentathlon in which she broke the British Under 13 record. This incredible feat quickly gained Morgan strong media attention with Athletics Weekly magazine quoting, "Morgan Lake is possibly the best 12 year old athlete on the planet!"
Going from strength to strength, Morgan went on to break the British Under 15 record for the Pentathlon and became the National Age Group Champion for both High and Long Jump.
Since then, the Heptathlon became her chosen sport and Morgan now holds 6 UK Age Group records, 23 National Age Group titles and is undoubtedly the World’s most successful Under 18 Heptathlete and High Jumper.
On 18 August 2016, Lake competed in the Rio Olympics in the Individual High Jump event for Team GB, achieving a Personal Best of 1.94m and reaching the Final.
2017 Lake competed in the IAAF Championships coming 6th overall. She went on, in 2018, to take part in the Commonwealth Games in Australia where she was awarded the Silver Medal for high jump. Then, in 2019 she achieved her new Personal Best, at Hustopece Meet, where she came 3rd after clearing 1.97m. Since then she has also competed in the IAAF Championships in Doha.
"In the UK, when you are starting out [as an athlete] you are not just pushed into one event, you get the chance to try them all out. There is great coaching in every event and there is such a great [Heptathlon] legacy with Denise Lewis and Kelly Sotherton and people you've grown up watching. It's a really great pathway."
