Ennis will not compete indoors this year

Sheffield's Olympic heptathlon champion Jess Ennis will not compete indoors in 2013 as she focuses her attention on the World Championships in Moscow this summer.

"After the incredible high of the Olympics and the post Games celebrations I went back into tough winter training with an open mind on whether or not I would want to compete indoors this year.

"Training has been going well, but I feel that my focus really has to be attempting to win another world title in Russia this summer and not the short term indoor season."

– Jessica Ennis

"Jess is a very mature and seasoned athlete who is focused on performing at her best in major championships. We 100 per cent support her decision in this respect, and look forward to seeing her in action later this year in the build up to the World Championships in Moscow."

– Peter Eriksson, Head Coach
