In early 2017 she made the Forbes 30 under 30 list for Europe and she's been one of the faces of various global Nike marketing campaigns. In May 2017, Nafi shot to third on the world all-time list with her 7013 heptathlon victory at the Hypo Meeting in Götzis. She reached the highest global score in the last 10 years, which was a meeting record at the same time.
