Jessica Ennis-Hill cutting it fine for World Championship bid

ATHLETICS: Jessica Ennis-Hill has delayed her comeback from an ankle injury yet again by opting not to compete at the Sainsbury's British Championships in Birmingham this weekend.

The 27-year-old has not taken to the track since winning the Olympic heptathlon title last summer.

Ennis-Hill could still be fit for the World Championships in Moscow but, with that event only a month away, there is now a real possibility that she will head to Russia having not competed all summer.

Ennis-Hill's decision not to compete in Birmingham means she has now pulled out of four meetings this summer.

She opted to miss the indoor season following the Olympics and subsequent wedding.
