Ennis-Hill out of Gotzis meeting

Olympic and world heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis-Hill has pulled out of June’s meeting in Gotzis, Austria.

The 30-year-old has not recovered from a recurrence of an Achilles tendon problem that forced her out of the World Indoor Championships in March.

She was due to go up against fellow Britons Katarina Johnson-Thompson and Morgan Lake, who are looking to achieve the Olympic qualifying standard.

Ennis-Hill has already secured her place in Rio.

However, missing the Gotzis meeting – one of the most prestigious on the heptathlon calendar – denies her the chance to assess her form, and that of her rivals, before the defence of her Olympic title in August.
