Sheffield golden girl Jessica Ennis-Hill says she will be competing in the Olympic anniversary games this weekend. Her participation was in question as she's missed the majority of this season with an ankle injury.
She said on her Twitter account this evening her Achilles tendon has been responding well to treatment and she aims to give it her best shot at the anniversary games.
A pink javelin signed by Jessica Ennis, a large London2012 Royal Mail stamp autographed by Mo Farah and a Mary Poppins costume from the Olympic opening ceremony are going under the hammer today at an auction in Coventry.
London 2012 chairman Lord Coe described it as a chance for people "to own a unique piece of the Games".
Congratulations to Bramhope Olympian Alistair Brownlee. The 24-year-old triathlete who scooped a gold medal at last summer's games is heading to London today. He will get an MBE for his sporting success from the Queen.

She said; "swimming is my passion, it's been that since I was young. Since i was four years old, getting in the pool I just absolutely loved it. I want to stay involved with that in all levels."
The double Olympic champion also explained why she is retiring at just 23-years-old saying, "women tend to be four years younger then men [on the team] and especially for my event, for distance swimming you are a lot younger."
