Article source: Athletics

Britain's Olympic champion Jessica Ennis-Hill in her return to athletics after giving birth last year and battling several injuries won her second  world heptathlon title.

Ennis Hill stormed to a win in the last event the 800m in  2:10.13 to secure her second world championships gold. The Briton totaled 6,669 points leaving Canada's Brianne Theisen-Eaton in second place with 115 points.  Latvia's Laura Ikauniece-Admidina took bronze with 6516 points.

"This is definitely one of the greatest moments of my career, I still can't believe it," she said. "Me and coach Toni (Minichiello) spoke about coming here, and we only wanted to come if I was able to compete for a medal. Said Ennis-Hill.

"This has been the hardest year ever. There were different pressures going into London 2012, but here juggling all my mummy duties has been even harder.

"I want to thank everyone for their help and sacrifices in helping me get back to being the athlete I was." She added.
