SHEFFIELD’S Jessica Ennis beat Tiffany Porter in the women’s 100m hurdles final during the Aviva Trails and Championships at the Alexander Stadium, Birmingham today.

Porter hit the second to last hurdle before being beaten by our Olympic gold hopeful.

Ennis looked impressive in the hurdles too and William Hill make her 4/6 to win gold at London 2012 in the heptathlon, 5/2 to win silver, 8/1 for bronze and 4/1 to finish outside of the top three.

Dwain Chambers made it through the GB Olympic trial defeating Adam Gemili although it may be a wasted journey as William Hill make him 150/1 to win the Olympic gold medal. Gemili is even less likely for victory at 200/1 although the experience may well do him well, with Hills making him 33/1 to win an Olympic gold in his career (halved from 66/1).

“Years of hard work both on and off the track look like they have finally paid off for Dwain who only ever wanted the opportunity to run for GB at the Olympics,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Chambers blotted his copybook by swearing in front of TV cameras after his race.
