Jess Ennis 2

18 February 2010

World heptathlete champion Jessica Ennis has withdrawn from the Aviva Indoor Grand Prix in Birmingham on Saturday 20 February to give her foot more time to heal completely.

Ennis said: “The scans a week ago showed a slight ligament sprain and the advice was to rest the foot and take it day by day. New scans of my foot today show it has healed a lot, but with the World Indoors only a few weeks away the advice from the UKA medical team is to give it a little more time to completely heal and focus on the World Indoors.

“I am of course disappointed at missing the opportunity to compete in Birmingham, but know being cautious is the best course of action.

“I am really happy with the way my foot is healing, training has not stopped and Toni, my coach, will gradually increase the intensity with all the focus on Doha,” she added.
