Jessica Ennis has confirmed that she will take part in the London 2012 Anniversary Games at the Olympic Stadium this summer.

Ennis, who won the heptathlon at last summer’s Olympics, will appear along with fellow British gold medallists Greg Rutherford and Mo Farah between 26 and 28 July.

The 27-year-old will compete in the 100m and long jump at the east London venue.

“I am really looking forward to competing in the London Anniversary Games,” said Ennis.

“I have amazing memories of competing in the Olympic Stadium last year and it will be good to step out on that track again in front of a British crowd.

“I will never forget the noise the crowd made when I competed last August and know that the draw of the stadium and the great line up of athletes will fill the stands and make it another incredible occasion.

“I am training hard and am getting excited about the prospect of getting out there and competing again this summer.”
