Jessica Ennis

25 June 2010

World heptathlon gold medallist Jessica Ennis has been forced to withdraw from this weekend’s Aviva European Trials and UK Championships due to illness.

Ennis (coach:Toni Minichiello) was set to compete in the high jump, long jump and 100m hurdles this weekend, in a thrilling attempt at a UK championship treble.

However the Sheffield athlete has been advised by the UKA medical team to rest with what appears to be a virus.

Ennis said:

“I’m devastated to be missing this weekend in Birmingham. I love competing there and I am in such awesome shape, I was so looking forward to it.

“I had a really great session yesterday morning where everything was on track, then started to feel ill soon after. I’ve been advised to rest for three or four days.

“I’m really gutted – I just want to wish everyone the best for this weekend and for them to know I’ll be watching and cheering them on from home.”
