Have your say

It’s hot, humid and rainy in South Korea - but Sheffield’s Jess Ennis is making herself well and truly at home.

Ennis is at a training camp in Ulsan prior to her World Championships heptathlon title defence. It’s hard going, but she found time for a photo-shoot for The Star.

She said “All I can do is train hard and get into the best possible shape that I can and I feel like I am in that position now. Obviously you can be in the best shape of your life and things can go wrong. But it’s just about putting the pieces together now to hopefully get that gold medal.

“The Aviva-funded preparation camps is an essential part of my preparation.”
