England Athletics U17 & U15 Indoor Combined Events Champs 2012
Five of our athletes were involved in the Championships, with Joe Hobson winning the U15 boys Northerm Championship
Jess in World Leading Form
Jessica Ennis ran the fastest 60m hurdles in the world this year as she impressed at the Aviva Grand Prix in Birmingham today. She ran a personal best 7.87 seconds to beat hurdles specialist Danielle Carruthers into second. She also set a personal best with 6.47m in the long jump to set her up for next month's defence of her pentathlon title at the World Indoor Championships in Istanbul.
Outlook Good for Jess
Judging by her performance at the Aviva European Indoor Trials & UK Championships this weekend there is a bright outlook for Jessica Ennis in her build up to the Olympics this year. Her winning 1.91m in the high jump on Saturday was her best since May last year. She followed this up with a PB equalling 7.95 seconds in winning the 60m hurdles on Sunday. Her shot putt was a little way off her PB , but an improvement on her performance in the Northern Championships in January.
