SHEFFIELD’S Jessica Ennis will compete at the Diamond League Grand Prix meeting in New York in June, organisers announced last night.

They did not reveal which events the world and European heptathlon champion would compete in at the June 11 Diamond League meeting.

Ennis was forced to pull out of the European Indoor Championships earlier this month following a persistent ankle injury. The 25-year-old will use the Grand Prix as preparation for the 2011 World Championships in South Korea later this year.

Sprinter Tyson Gay, 400m runner Jeremy Wariner and high jumper Blanka Vlasic will also headline the meeting at Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island.
