Gold medal winning British Olympian, Jessica Ennis-Hill has revealed that she is set to miss the Commonwealth Games of Glasgow in 2014 as she is expecting her first baby with her husband Andy Hill. Marrying her husband in May 2013, the British heptathlon was certainly not expecting to be with child as early as now and she has admitted that her plans for 2014 have been “completely turned upside down.” Nevertheless, despite this being a minor bump in her career, Ennis-Hill has reassured the British public she will still go for heptathlon gold at the Rio 2016 Olympics.
Jessica Ennis-Hill made history in 2012 as she won the heptathlon Olympics gold medal for Great Britain at her home in London in front of one of the loudest crowds an Olympics have ever seen. However, following an unforgettable 2012, Ennis-Hill suffered a disappointing 2013 which saw her being forced to miss the World Championships as she had an Achilles tendon problem. Furthermore, career-wise she will be upset that she will now miss the 2014 Commonwealth Games, but overall the English athletics idol is sure to be over the moon at the prospect of becoming a mother.
The 27-year-old Olympic talent, Jessica Ennis-Hill commented, “I am sorry I won’t be in Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games. But I know it will be an amazing occasion. I will be at home awaiting the arrival of a little Ennis-Hill. My plans for 2014 have been completely turned upside down, but having had a couple of weeks to think about things from a career point of view I am 100% set on returning to full time athletics once our baby is born and go for a second gold medal at the Rio Olympics in 2016; that challenge really excites me. But in the short term I will make our baby a priority and enjoy the whole experience as much as possible.”
