Track and Field Champion Jessica Ennis-Hill Withdraws from World Championships Due to Achilles Tendon Injury
Jessica Ennis-Hill, Olympic heptathlon champion, has been forced to withdraw from the World Championships in Moscow this month due to an Achilles tendon injury in her left heel.
The athlete has been struggling with the injury since early June and has been forced to pull out of several competitions.
It is a disappointing injury that follows a great year for Ennis-Hill. Last year, Ennis-Hill won a gold medal at the London Olympics, a high point in her career. And it was in May 2013 that Ennis wed Andy Hill and announced her new name to the world: Jessica Ennis-Hill. Two life-changing events in a short amount of time.
It was only shortly after the May wedding that the Achilles tendon pain began.
Now, Ennis-Hill and her coach are making the decision to pull out of the World Championships to give her time to heal properly before continuing with competition. They are taking the position that it is better to miss out on this championship than to aggravate or worsen her Achilles tendon problem.
Hopefully, her Achilles tendon will heal quickly and Ennis-Hill can get back to training and preparing for further competitions, including the next Olympic games.
