Olympic and World Heptathlon Champion Jessica Ennis-Hill will no longer compete indoors in 2016. She explained:

“Training over the winter has been great – but in the last two weeks my right achilles has been sore. I am waiting on guidance from my medical team after having a scan, but with just two weeks to my first race my coach and I have made the decision to skip the indoors and  keep the focus on Rio. My training schedule and the appropriate care is  being developed now with the outdoor season as the focus. My priority has always been Rio and I don’t want to take any risks in the short-term.”

“I am understandably frustrated but know this is the right approach. I am sorry not to be competing in Glasgow – it is such a great meet and the crowd is so supportive."
