Sheffield’s Olympian queen Jessica Ennis-Hill will compete at the sold out Glasgow Indoor Grand Prix at the 5,000 seat Emirates Arena on Saturday February 20.

The Glasgow Indoor Grand Prix is the world’s number one ranked indoor athletics meeting and is being heralded as the best one-day athletics meeting to ever be held in Scotland.

It will feature many of the world’s best athletes, including Britain’s other gold medal winners at the London 2012 Olympics, Mo Farah and Greg Rutherford.

Twenty-nine year old mum Ennis-Hill has a great record in the 60m hurdles in Glasgow, setting a personal best in 2008, a British record of 7.95 in 2010 and then taking victory in 2011. She said: “I am looking forward to competing at Glasgow – this fixture always kick-starts my year.

“Training is going well and it will be good to get out there and compete with some great athletes and test myself. Olympic year is a big year for all of us and the first competition brings with it trepidation and excitement.”
