As a junior Jessica Ennis-Hill showed great promise and in her first year as a senior athlete, she won a Bronze medal at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, Australia.
In 2007 she broke Denise Lewis’ Under-23 record for the heptathlon and equaled the 25 year old British High Jump Record with 1.95m. Her continued success as a senior heptathlete earned her a place on team GB for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, a dream that was eventually shattered as a result of three stress fractures in her ankle.
Jessica made her heptathlon comeback at the 2009 IAAF Combined Events Challenge in Desenzano del Gard, Italy setting a personal best of 6587 to win the event placing her third on the British all time heptathlon records.
Her Gold medal in Berlin at the IAAF World Championships resulted in a points score of 6731 and Ennis was crowned the new World Champion.
At the 2010 World Indoor Championships in Doha, Ennis achieved another world title when she won the pentathlon with the 3rd highest ever score for the event – beating the Olympic Gold, Silver and Bronze medalists too.
More success quickly followed in 2010 when she dominated the indoor season winning the World Indoor Pentathlon title, this time in Doha. The European Heptathlon Gold medal followed, and together with a new Personal Best score of 6823 capped a truly remarkable year.
In August 2012 Ennis-Hill won Gold in the heptathlon at the London 2012 Olympic Games with a British and Commonwealth record score of 6,955 points. At the end of the first day Ennis had scored 4,158 points, her highest ever first-day total, and was 184 points ahead of her nearest competitor Austra Skujyte. Jessica’s first-day score included two personal bests: 12.54 seconds in the 100 metres hurdles and 22.83 seconds in the 200 metres. Her time in the 100 metres hurdles was a new British record and also the fastest time ever run in a heptathlon. Ennis-Hill achieved another personal best of 47.49 metres in the javelin and won the final event, the 800 metres, in a time of 2:08.65.
In August 2016, Ennis-Hill defended her Olympic title at the 2016 Rio Games, winning a silver medal.
