Ennis-Hill to miss indoor season, hopes to be fit for Rio

BY foxsports • February 5, 2016

LONDON (AP) Olympic heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis-Hill will miss the indoor athletics season because of an Achilles injury sustained in training.

The Briton still hopes to participate fully in the outdoor season, starting in late May and building to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in August.

Asked if the injury puts her participation in Rio in question, Ennis-Hill told British broadcaster Sky Sports: ''At this stage I'm hoping that's not the case. We're still in February, there's a lot of time before the Olympics.''

The world indoor championships are in Portland, Oregon next month.
