Athletics: Ennis is fighting fit and winning again
British heptathlete Jessica Ennis took her first victory at the McCain Indoor City Challenge in Cardiff on Saturday.
Ennis has been in recovery since last May nursing a stress fracture to her ankle, and changing her technique to protect her weak right leg that she damaged at the IAAF World Combined Events Challenge meeting in Gotzis. The injury meant she missed out on going to the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.
The small win shows she’s back on track with her training, but the 23-year-old Commonwealth bronze medallist is slightly disappointed with her overall winning mark, despite winning the shot put and the 60m hurdles.
Ennis said, “I think I could have ran faster than that. I felt competitive.”
Jessica remains positive she can gain a medal at the World Championship in Berlin and is confident that her full training will continue
