SHEFFIELD superstar Jessica Ennis has confirmed she will compete in four events during the Olympic trials in Birmingham next month.

Ennis, who broke the British heptathlon record in Gotzis recently, will compete in the 100 metre hurdles and high jump on Saturday, June 23, and in the long jump and 200m the following day.

“I want to use the meet to give myself a real physical test over two days, as I’ll be competing in two heats and four finals over the weekend,” she said.

“The competition will be tough and there will be no let-up over the two days.”
