Keely Hodgkinson Career
Hodgkinson joined Leigh Harriers at the age of nine, but initially swam with Howe Bridge Aces before devoting herself fully to running.
At age of 10, she competed in the British Schools Modern Biathlon Championships in London. She finished second in the 500 metres with a personal best of 1:34.28 and also swam 50 m with a new best as well for eighth place overall. Her father advised her to run, and she was inspired by British heptathlete Jessica Ennis-Hill winning a gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics.
The next year, in 2013, Keely had an unbeaten streak of 14 consecutive running events. In winning a one-mile cross country course she became the first Leigh Harriers girl to take the individual under-11 title in both the South East Lancashire League and the Red Rose League. About two weeks later, she ran her 16th undefeated race, winning 2 km course with the lead of 45 seconds. On the track, as a first-year U13, she became double Greater Manchester champion at the 800 and 1200 metres.
In 2014, the then 12-year-old won all her 13 track races (across 800–1500 metres events) as well as many cross country competitions. She took her third Greater Manchester title on a 2.75 km cross country course and later defended both her track titles, breaking championship records – the latter of which had stood since 1985. Her 1200 m best was bettered only in 2019, remaining, as of 2023, the third-fastest on the British U13 girl’s all-time list.
In 2015, she had to limit training and starts due to a mastoidectomy surgery to remove a tumour on her ear (which has left her 95% deaf in this ear) followed by problems with knees.
In June 2018, at 16, Hodgkinson became the England U20 800 m champion. The next month, she won a gold medal at the European U18 Championships held in Győr, Hungary, finishing in 2:04.84 and breaking the championship record in the process. In August, she added titles at the England under-17s and at the UK School Games with a competition record. In October, Wigan Borough Council named Hodgkinson Sports Achiever of the Year, selecting her for its Believe Talent Fund. Her season’s and lifetime best was 2:04.26.
Her 2019 athletics year was affected by shin problems for most of the winter. Despite this, she placed second at the England under-20s and took bronze at the U20 Europeans held in Borås, Sweden, setting a new personal best of 2:03.40.
2022 saw the emergence of new rival for Hodgkinson as Moraa, defeated by Briton in the most important event during World finals, entered Mu–Hodgkinson equation. Keely got her 2023 campaign off to strong start. On 28 January, her Bryggen Sports’ home indoor track facility in Manchester organised for its local star the less frequently run race of 600 metres as part of World Indoor Tour bronze meet. She scorched to a world indoor best of 1:23.41, beating by 0.03 s Olga Kotlyarova’s record set in 2004. She clashed indoors with Moraa in Toruń about two weeks later and then in Liévin, France, with Hodgkinson taking dominant victories, setting a meet record at the former (1:57.87). She triumphed also more than 2.50 s clear of the field at the World Indoor Tour Final in Birmingham, improving her own British indoor record by 0.02 s with a time of 1:57.18 and taking her first overall 800 m World Indoor Tour victory. The Briton rounded off her indoor campaign with a successful, overwhelming defense of her European title at Istanbul 2023. She dedicated the win to her first coach in athletics Joe Galvin, who died a few days earlier.
