Britain’s gold medal heptathlon hero Jess Ennis this morning ruled out any chance of appearing in the individual 100 metres hurdles at London 2012.
Ennis had entered herself for the event, which have heats tomorrow and a final on Tuesday, in case she had any problems in the heptathlon.
But, after sparking off a British gold medal hat-trick in the Olympic Stadium last night, Ennis is ready for a break.
“Right now I’m just going to enjoy this moment for as long as I possibly can, spend some time with my family and then have a break and relax,’’ the 26-year-old told BBC Breakfast.
“It’s being a long build-up and it’s been stressful.
“I did think about it (entering the 100m hurdles) especially when I ran a personal best in the hurdles.
“But for me it was just about the heptathlon. I’m more than happy with that and I think I just need to rest now.”
Speaking on Radio Five Live, Ennis spoke of the moment she crossed the line.
“I was feeling a mixture of excitement, relief, exhaustion, so many mixed emotions that have built up,” she said.
“It was a huge relief that I have completed the heptathlon and that I’d won.”
Ennis revealed she kept the medal by the side of her bed overnight.
“I slept for about two hours,” she added. “I just kept looking at my medal and thinking about what I’ve achieved. I don’t think it’s sunk in yet.
“I looked at it as soon as I woke up, and I’ll look at it every day.”
On coping with the pressure of being the face of the Games going into the event, she said: “There has been lots and lots of pressure and everyone just expected me to win.
“It’s been quite hard to deal with that but I’ve had great people around me.
“I just wanted to get focused and use the positiveness (sic) from everyone around the country and use that to get this gold medal.”
On her plans for the immediate future, she added: “I’m definitely going to relax, eat lots of rubbish food, have a few glasses of wine and enjoy this moment for as long as possible.”
