Ennis won’t do 100m hurdlesComment on this story
London – British golden girl Jessica Ennis, basking in the glory of her Olympic Games heptathlon title, will not be tempted to double up by taking on the 100m hurdles.
The 26-year-old had pencilled herself in for the hurdles, but with the heats set to get underway on Monday, Ennis said she is ready for a rest.
“Right now I'm just going to enjoy this moment for as long as I possibly can, spend some time with my family and then have a break and relax,” she told the BBC.
“It's being a long build-up and it's been stressful. I did think about it (entering the 100m hurdles) especially when I ran a personal best in the hurdles.
“But for me it was just about the heptathlon. I'm more than happy with that and I think I just need to rest now.” – AFP
