Ennis-Hill trails in fourth


THE GOLDEN girl of British athletics Jessica Ennis-Hill has much thinking to do after finishing a disappointing fourth in the 100m hurdles at the Anniversary Games this afternoon (July 27).

Injury has blighted the Sheffield-born athlete’s season and her participation in the upcoming World Championships in Moscow must still remain a major doubt.

Ennis-Hill, the London 2012 heptathlete gold medallist, understandably looked apprehensive pre-race as her World Championship aspirations would be made clearer after her 100m hurdles run out.

Her time of 13.08 seconds was not good enough to trouble winner, Australian Sally Pearson who clocked a season’s best time of 12.65.

Pearson is the reigning world champion and must be favourite to retain her crown after this convincing win.

Ennis’ team GB colleague Tiffany Porter, 25, will be much happier with her afternoon’s work having followed Pearson home in a time of 12.76.
