SHEFFIELD’S Jessica Ennis has been confirmed in Great Britain’s 39-strong squad for next month’s Indoor World Championship in Turkey.

The Millhouses-based athlete will defend her pentathlon crown in Istanbul after an excellent start to the season, which saw he set a world-best time last weekend in the 60 metre hurdles.

Sprinter Dwain Chambers is also hoping to defend his world indoor 60m title.

British indoor record holder Holly Bleasdale will compete in the pole vault, while UK indoor long jump record holder Shara Proctor, 4x400m specialist Christine Ohuruogu, 60m hurdler Tiffany Porter and triple jumper Yamile Aldama are also part of the team that will travel to Turkey.
