Jess misses out on a gong show

Have your say

SHEFFIELD’S Jessica Ennis is back on the track - and so has little time to be collecting awards.

The heptathlon gold medal from the London Olympics was unable to travel to Malta - as was Mo Farah - to receive awards from Athletics Europe, the body responsible for athletics in Europe.

Lord Sebastian Coe, chairman of the Organising Committee of the London Games, arrived in Malta on Friday/Saturday night did the honours, receiving the award for Ennis.

Hansjorg Wirz, president of European body, said it was ‘unfortunate’ the pair were unable to fly over to receive their awards. Ennis has already started training while Farah was travelling.
