JESSICA Ennis’s coach is convinced there is more for the Olympic champion to achieve in the heptathlon.

Sheffield superstar Ennis delivered one of the performances of the London Games to take the gold medal with 6,955 points, over 300 more than her nearest rival.

But Minichiello is adamant the 26-year-old can improve in the heptathlon and has outlined further targets.

He said: “I think that 7,000 points is something she’ll want and she’s never won a Commonwealth Games. Plus there’s the World Championships in Moscow next year.”

Ennis resumes training next week.
