Two women, both at the top of their game but in two very different sports.

Jess Ennis, Sheffield’s multi-talented athlete started her indoor season in superb style in front of her home crowd at the English Institute of Sport with impressive performances in the high jump, 60m hurdles and shot put at the Aviva UK Championships.

Meanwhile Sheffield-based Shelley Rudman produced her own brand of brilliance in the skeleton bobsleigh to clinch the World Cup series for the first time in Calgary.
