06 June 2013 / 10:03

Jessica Ennis-Hill has withdrawn from this weekend’s British Women’s League meeting in Edinburgh due to injury.

The Olympic heptathlon champion had been expected to compete in three events in Scotland as she looks to ramp up her preparations for this summer’s World Athletics Championships.

But on the advice of her medical team Ennis-Hill will now miss the competition as she looks to recuperate from an Achilles problem.

Ennis-Hill’s next planned competition is now the Oslo Diamond League on June 13.

She said: “Obviously I am really disappointed as I was really looking forward to getting my season underway on Saturday, but I am not going to take any risks.

“I have been told if I rest this now, I should be able to resume my competitions as soon as possible, hopefully next week.

“I am sorry to all the people in Edinburgh who planned to come and support me alongside the other athletes but hope I can compete there another time.”
