Olympic Heptathlon Champion Jessica Ennis-Hill Expected Out for Four Months with Achilles Injury
There has been an update on Jessica Ennis-Hill, the track and field star we wrote about yesterday:
Ennis-Hill pulled out of the approaching World Championships in Moscow this week and her coach, Toni Minichiello, has now announced that Ennis-Hill will be taking further time out from competing while she recovers from the Achilles tendon injury and heel problems in her left foot.
Apparently, the injury is now expected to keep Ennis-Hill out of action for about four months. She has been struggling with the injury since early June and has been forced to withdraw from several competitions due to the pain and discomfort she has been experiencing.
By taking time out to heal now instead of pushing herself through the pain, Ennis-Hill, an Olympic gold medalist, is looking out for her future career and her health.
It is disappointing to hear this news after Ennis-Hill had such a successful year in 2012, but it is better that she takes the time off to heal properly now than try to compete while injured and possibly cause more damage.
Again, we wish her the best! Hopefully, she will return to competition soon and stronger than ever!
