• Ennis-Hill Wants World Indoor Title Back

Article source:

Defending Olympic heptathlon champ, Jessica-Ennis Hills, says she has recovered from Achilles tendon and a heel injuries and now hopes to compete at the 2014 World Indoor Championships in Sopot, Poland.

After an incredible 2012 Olympic year, Ennis-Hill suffered an Achilles tendon injury which ruled her out from Moscow World Championships. The only time the Olympic Champion appeared  in 2013 season was in July at a low-key meeting in Loughborough, where she threw a PR in Javelin 48.33m and did the long jump. SEE VIDEO HERE

 The 27 year old Britain said that she can train normally thanks to a successful rehabilitation Ennis-Hill started in September.

“I really want to do the indoor season but I am still playing it week by week to see if I can get back into full training but that is still the hope. I want to do the pentathlon at the World Indoors next March,” she told local media.

Great Britain's greatest 'multi-eventer', Ennis-Hill, took silver at the 2009 World Indoor champs setting a national record with 4965 points. At the 2010 world indoor championships in Doha she took the pentathlon gold.

The 2014 World Indoor Championships will be held in the Polish city of Sopot between 7-9 March.
