Jessica Ennis-Hill out of World Championships

Jessica Ennis-Hills

Jessica Ennis-Hill has decided to withdraw from the World Championships, after a relatively poor performance at the Anniversary Games, to fully recover from an Achilles injury. This injury has plagued the athlete all year, causing her to miss five events this year. The Anniversary Games was only her second competitive appearance since winning gold at London 2012, and it showed, as Jessica only managed fourth place in the 100m hurdles and finished in last place for the long jump. Jessica and her coach Toni Minichiello have taken the prudent decision in missing the games in Moscow in an effort to getting rid of the nagging injury once and for all, which in their estimation should take a maximum of four months.

Sports betting fans will be hoping that she will be back in business in time for the Commonwealth Games in 2014, and even though it will be a bitter pill to swallow in the sense of not being able to compete for such a long period of time, it is most definitely the right decision as the risk of causing irreparable damage is just to high. At this point in the Olympic heptathlon champion has to think about the next few years. Jessica already achieved gold and still has lot more good years left in her, so there is no rush and the athlete is better concentrating on getting completely rid of the Achilles injury.

The athlete has been quite lucky in her career not not suffer from any major issues since her multiple stress in her foot in 2008. So hopefully she will be able to overcome this latest injury and be back to her best. One can take solace in the fact that Jessica Innes-Hill is only one of a number of Olympic and World Champions who will not be involved in the World Championships in Moscow, which will held from the 10th to the 18th August.
