UK - London 2012 - Victory Parade - Jessica Ennis 01

Just back from London having spent the day taking photos of Team GB and their parade through he streets of London, this shot of Heptathlon Gold Medallist Jessica Ennis is one of my favourites. More to follow tomorrow.

 

From Wikipedia : "In August 2012 Ennis won the gold medal in the heptathlon at the London 2012 Olympic Games with a British and Commonwealth record score of 6,955 points, beating silver medallist Lilli Schwarzkopf by 306 points and bronze medallist Tatyana Chernova by a further 21 points. At the end of the first day Ennis had scored 4,158 points, her highest ever first-day total, and was 184 points ahead of her nearest competitor Austra Skujyte. Ennis's first-day score included two personal bests: 12.54 seconds in the 100 metres hurdles and 22.83 seconds in the 200 metres. Her time in the 100 metres hurdles was a new British record and also the fastest time ever run in a heptathlon. It also equalled Dawn Harper's winning time for the women's 100 metres hurdles final in 2008. Ennis achieved another personal best of 47.49 metres in the javelin and won the final event, the 800 metres, in a time of 2:08.65."
