Jessica Ennis-Hill to compete at world championships

Olympic heptathlon gold medallist Jessica Ennis-Hill has announced that she is to compete in the world athletics championships in Beijing next month.

"My coach and I have made the decision that I`m going to make myself available for selection for the world champs," she said on her official Twitter account on Tuesday.

Ennis-Hill returned to the sport in May following the birth of her son.

The 29-year-old produced her three best displays since the London Olympics when she competed at the Anniversary Games in the capital at the weekend.
