Jess bids to Power to glory

Have your say

ATHLETICS star Jessica Ennis stood just a javelin’s throw from the Olympic Stadium as she took time out of training in Sheffield for a photoshoot.

The 26-year-old 2012 heptathlon gold medal prospect, from Woodseats, was in London to launch the new Olympic Games Sports Bottle for Powerade, one of her sponsors.

But Jess shunned an invite inside the stadium - saying she wants to keep that until the Games themselves.

She said: “If it’s too familiar there is a danger you might get complacent, thinking ‘oh, I was here a few weeks ago doing a photoshoot’.

“I don’t want those distractions in my head.”
