Kelly Sotherton & Jessica Ennis

Great Britain’s top heptathlon duo Kelly Sotherton (Birchfield Harriers) and Jessica Ennis have both accepted invites from the European Athletics Association to compete at the European Indoor Championships 2-4 March in Birmingham.

Despite the host nation having the option to enter one athlete automatically for the championship pentathlon, the pair, who finished in seventh and eighth positions respectively at last years European Championships in Gothenburg, received automatic invitations from the EAA because of their current rankings for the event.

The timing is crucial for both athletes as they finalise their competitive schedules for the indoor season that will now culminate in opening the Championships on day one on Friday 2 March with the 60m hurdles at 9.30am.

The Norwich Union GB team also has the option of entering squads for both men’s and women’s 4x400m relays having also received invites from the EAA.

Further selections for the team will be made next month, with the majority of the team announced following the Norwich Union Indoor Trials and UK Championships on 10-11 February, and following the final selection meeting on 24 February.
