Jessica Ennis-Hill will not be competing in the Women’s Athletic League Meeting in Edinburgh on the 8 June as planned due to a stiff left Achilles.  She has been advised by the UKA Medical team to rest it for a few days as a precaution.

“Obviously I am really disappointed as I was really looking forward to getting my season underway on Saturday, but I am not going to take any risks.  I have been told if I rest this now I should be able to resume my competitions as soon as possible – hopefully next week, commented Jessica Ennis-Hill.

“I am sorry to all the people in Edinburgh who planned to come and support me alongside the other athletes– but hope I can compete there another time. It promises to be a really good meeting and I wish all the other athletes good luck with their performances.” She added.
Ennis-Hill’s next planned competition is the Oslo Diamond League on Thursday 13 June.
