Golden girl Jess is back in business

OUT FOR MORE GLORY: Jessica Ennis-Hill

OLYMPIAN JESSICA Ennis-Hill has returned to training after giving birth to her first child, just three months ago.

The heptathlete who won gold at London 2012 with a British record number of points is hoping to compete in the Rio Olympics in 2016, after missing this year's European Championships and Commonwealth Games.

The 28-year-old said on social media: “Back in the gym... building back into training. Exciting and slightly scary! My journey to Rio starts now.”

During her time on the sidelines, Katrina Johnson-Thompson has stepped up to the plate; winning silver in the long jump at the World Indoor Championships. Johnson-Thompson also achieved this year's season best of 6682 in the competition at the Gotzi's in Austria
By the time Rio commences Ennis-Hill will be 30-years-old and even though she hasn't competed for two years she is still fifth in the all-time records with 6955 points.

However, Sheffield-born Ennis-Hill still has a long way to go to beat Jacki Joyner-Kersee's (Flo-Jo's) record of 7291 set at the Seoul Olympics in 1988.
