Ennis set for gold push
Jessica Ennis will be looking to make it job done when she starts the second day of the women's heptathlon on Saturday.
The Great Britain star managed to secure an overnight lead in the standings, after she impressed in both the running events in the form of the 100m hurdles and the 200m. Ennis struggled to compete with the athletes who had their strengths in the high jump and the shot put, but the Sheffield heptathlon specialist led medal contender Tatyana Chernova after the first four events. The 26-year-old will now be looking ahead to the long jump, javelin and the 800m on Saturday having enjoyed her first day of action at the London Games. She told the BBC: "I'm so pleased to end the day with that. I knew it was a fast track from the hurdles but I'm made up to have run a PB. "I'm still in shock about the hurdles but it was a bit up and down. High jump I was a bit disappointed by, but not too bad. Shot put, also a little bit disappointed, but all solid performances and two PBs is brilliant."
