Ennis set for Glasgow

November 1, 2012 13:40 pm

Jessica Ennis will compete at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, her coach Toni Minichiello has confirmed.

The Olympic champion hopes to claim a Commonwealth gold to complete the set of major championship titles.

"Jessica will be at Glasgow 2014, definitely," said Minichiello, who was in Glasgow last weekend for the International Festival of Athletics Coaching (IFAC).

"That is absolutely the competition plan for us looking ahead. She has not won the Commonwealth title before.

"She was the bronze medallist in Melbourne in 2006 when still quite young and didn't travel to Delhi two years ago. It will not be easy in Glasgow, either.

"There are Canadians and Australians who can step up to the mark there so it will be good competition.

"It is tight in terms of the schedule with Glasgow 2014 coming about a fortnight before the European Championships, but we certainly intend to come to Scotland."
