She was originally a high jumper but later turned to 400m hurdles and then to flat. Lee is both 200m and 400m Scottish champion and is a Commonwealth Silver in 2002. She has also been participating in the relay team for Great Britain.
What about her social life?
“My training sessions determine my social life,�? she shrugs. “I do go out with my friends and see my family, for dinner or to the cinema or to catch up over coffees. It’s kind of normal, and the only social side I don’t have is going out clubbing. I don’t do that in the summer months and only occasionally in the winter. It doesn’t bother me that much.�?
While Lee McConnell looked stunning in pink during a recent photo shoot… her ultimate goal is gold.
