Jessica Ennis to start her athletics season in Glasgow

Jessica Ennis will kick off her London 2012 Olympics preparation by starting her season in Glasgow, early next year.

The 24-year-old athlete from Sheffield will have a rematch against indoor hurdles champion Lolo Jones when the pair go head-to-head on Saturday January 29th.

Ennis is currently the world and European heptathlon champion and managed to beat Jones in front of those booking Glasgow hotels last year.

The rivals will also face off in Birmingham on Saturday February 19th, before heading to the European Indoor Championships in Paris in March.

"I couldn't have asked for a better start to the year than with two wins in Glasgow and obviously the one over Lolo received a lot of attention. I'm looking forward to lining up in the hurdles again with her," she said.

Ennis was recently rewarded at the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year ceremony, coming third, behind Phil Taylor and AP McCoy.
