Another major accolade for Ennis


MULTI-EVENTER Jessica Ennis has received another gong following gold at the London 2012 Olympic Games as she was named The Sunday Times Sportswoman of the Year at a ceremony in London on November 8.

Ennis, 26, won gold in the heptathlon at London 2012 in the summer in a new British record of 6,955 points.

The 26-year-old set personal bests in the 200m, javelin and a national record of 12.54 seconds in the 100m hurdles.

The Sheffield native – who was named European Female Athlete of the Year and British Olympic Athlete of the Year in October - was unable to attend the ceremony but told BBC Sport: "It's an incredible honour considering the amazing performances we've had this year from British women.

"It's so nice, once you've done all the hard work and you've achieved, to be awarded with these amazing awards that people have voted for.

"It's a real honour and Sports Personality [BBC Sports Personality of the Year] is definitely going to be a big one too. It's going to be a surprise on the night I think but a great evening."

Tennis players Laura Robson and Heather Watson were jointly named Young Sportswomen of the Year.
