I don't want to be someone else.

I'm in awe of any Olympic champion, for sure.

I can't change my personality. I'll always smile, but I'll be more focused.

We are all trying to achieve our dreams.

Competing in London would be a dream come true.

London 2012 was the biggest thing I will probably ever do, but I didn't realise it at the time!

I want to win medals for myself.

I always have a book that I write during competition. I need it with me, just to read back and reflect and look forward. If I'm feeling anxious, it helps me.

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 don't do athletics for any other reason than achieving certain distances, certain titles and goals in my head.

I was watching 'Deal or No Deal' on YouTube recently, and I bawled when the contestant won £250,000. I think I just like watching people achieve their dreams.

I remember going down the tunnel into the Olympic Stadium and getting a glimpse of all the people and hearing all the noise, all the people shouting for us. I'd seen Usain Bolt on the warm-up track, and then, as I walked into the stadium, I sort of realised how big it was!

When it comes to peaking at the right time, I have to thank my coach Mike Holmes: he is a genius.

For me, I can't see Liverpool without him because he's just been there since I was a kid. I had him on the back of my shirt. He's always been on the team every time I've watched Liverpool. It's going to be really weird next season, a Steven Gerrard-less Liverpool side.

I should have a better CV, and that's knocked me into believing that I have to grab these opportunities while I can.

It's a huge step up from the European Indoors to then being a gold medallist at the World Championships.

I can't be disappointed with my first gold in a senior championship, and to score 5000 points, which only one other woman, the world record holder, has got over, I am satisfied.

I've got so many big gains to make in the javelin and the shot put. I know I'm not going to be winning the field in those events, but I need to do myself justice.

There will be mental worries with the long jump before Rio, but I know I can get through it. It's just getting my confidence back. I know I have a big jump in me.

I live with my mum and my nan. I think I will leave eventually, but not at the moment when they look after me so well. If you came to my house, they'd make you eat something.

Mum is the girliest of them all, but she ended up with me, the tomboy.

I can handle coming fifth as long as I know I've given my all out there and have no regrets.

I can always go back to education.

When I was a kid, I always had my hair in two plaits. But for dancing, I had to have it in a bun because I did ballet.

I'm very wholehearted. I want to concentrate on one thing in my life at one time.

This is my job. I just wake up, and I train.

In the heptathlon, you can be any shape. Some of the girls are more built than others, and their strong events are the shot put and javelin.

I always said I wanted an Olympic medal. It's the pinnacle of any athlete's career.

You don't have to be a bodybuilder to have strength in your muscles.

Maybe I'm the kind of athlete who absorbs the atmosphere instead of trying to block it out.

There's a big debate whether pentathlon or heptathlon is harder: five events in one day or seven in two.

I have seven disciplines to train for, and so I try to complete them all every week.

If something is mine, then I want to keep it.

You can be in the shape of your life, and then injury strikes. So you have to grab your opportunities.

When there was a fight in school, because I was the tall one, the teachers would say, 'I know you were there. I could see you.'

It's a huge step up from the European Indoor Championships to being world outdoor gold medallist.

It's very easy to run a good 200 m. after an appalling shot put.

I want to lay all my cards out on the table and walk away with no regrets.

Everything happens for a reason - I'm a believer of that for sure.

It's impossible in heptathlon to have a proper rivalry - you're spending two days together and seven events and dedicate your life to it. It's like a marathon: two days of mental and physical exhaustion.

I feel like, when I'm 100% healthy, I can do anything.

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.

The heptathlon is made up of seven events, and people have strengths and weaknesses.

I think I rely on my talent more than my brain sometimes.

I've always looked at 2016, but 2020 is realistic for me. I'll be 23 in 2016, but if I keep on progressing, hopefully 2016 will be a medal chance as well for me.

If you saw pictures of me as a kid, you'd laugh because I was always in football kit.

You don't not want to beat somebody because you're friends with them.

I've been training quite hard.

Beijing was a huge slap in the face, and it forced me to look at myself. I have to realise that this is my life.
