Meet Katy Livingston

Meet Katy Livingston

Katy Livingston is one of Britain's brightest prospects for the upcoming Olympics in Beijing and also London 2012.

24 year old Katy, from Redcar, is a modern pentathlete (that's fencing, pistol shooting, 200m freestyle swimming, a show jumping course on horseback, and a cross-country run, all in the same day!) and Vital SWFC was pleased to learn she's a Wednesday fan. Katy is definitely on the up, having recently claimed the first World Cup victory of her modern pentathlon career in Egypt in February. She was kind enough to answer a few questions about herself and, of course, the mighty Owls!

What are your targets in your sporting life?

My target for this year is to get selected to compete at the Beijing Olympics in August. My long term target is to compete and win a medal at London 2012.

So are we going to be able to see you in Beijing?

I have already attained a qualification place for Beijing by finishing 6th at the European Championships last year. However, only two British athletes can compete and the selection process does not end until June 1st so I have to wait until then to find out whether I have been selected to compete.

We'll keep our fingers and toes crossed for you! So, Katy, you're from Redcar but you're a Wednesday fan.. why the Owls?

My dad was born and bred in Sheffield and has always been a strong Wednesdayite so I guess I just followed in his footsteps. Thank goodness his influence was stronger than that of my local community otherwise I would have been a Boro fan.

What are your best Wednesday memories?

My favourite Wednesday memory is the play-off final in Cardiff. The crowd and the atmosphere was amazing and the result obviously topped the whole experience off.

Do you have a favourite Owls player from the past? And from the current squad?

I used to enjoy the days of Di Canio and Carbone, but in recent times I have enjoyed watching Chris Brunt. He had good and bad games but you never knew what magic he was going to produce. In the current squad, my favourite player is Frank Simek.

Do you get time to go to see the Owls play?

I usually get to see around five or six games a season. I live in Bath and unfortunately most weeks I have to train on a Saturday morning so cannot make it to Sheffield in time for kick off. I was also disappointed to be abroad for Wednesday's away trip to Bristol this season although I made it to Ninian Park for the match against Cardiff.

What message would you like to send to the Owls right now?

Rather like pentathlon, every point in this league counts, especially this season where everyone is so close. The boys need to keep fighting to the last minute of every game.

On the forum, we have a 20 Questions section.. let's try some of those. What do you have for breakfast?

This morning I had a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios and a banana.

What's in your pockets right now?

I'm currently wearing my running kit so don't have any pockets. If I was in my casual clothes I'd be carrying a handbag rather than holding items in my pockets.

Fair enough! Do you ever wash spiders down the plug hole?

I probably have done at some point in my life but I never squash them. Much better to catch them under a glass then chuck them out the window!

Which film have you watched more times than any other?

I'm a big fan of Leonardo DiCaprio and have watched 'Romeo and Juliet' more than any other film.

And which person, other than yourself, have you ever wanted to be?

Whoever is lucky enough to be cast as Leo DiCaprio's girl in any of his films - Kate Winslet in 'Titanic' would be a good role to play!

Thanks for taking the time out from your busy schedule to talk to us, Katy, and Vital SWFC sends its best wishes.. we hope to be seeing you on our screens soon competing for that coveted Olympic gold medal. I wonder, can you take your Wednesday scarf on to the podium?

Oh it's all clear again! I thought my comment was quite a reasonable response on wishing her good look to the Beijing and London Olympics and hope she brings home the gold! Wonder if she would like to come out on a Vital meet up?
