The Scottish high jump record-holder talks to Katy Barden about finding confidence

“I’ve known for a while that I can jump mid-1.90s, maybe higher, but it’s always been the mental side I’ve lacked and probably a little bit of belief, but seeing those heights creep up in training has made a massive difference.”

Manson is coached by former Scottish international high jumper Ray Bobrownicki alongside her strength and conditioning coach, boyfriend Sam O’Kane. She says she’s a glass half empty person, but her lockdown experience challenged her attitude and, she believes, made her tougher.
