Jess Ennis: From Graduate to Golden Girl and beyond...

 

Jessica Ennis has gone from University graduate to Golden Girl at the Olympic Games in the short space of five years - and the heptathlete promises there's plenty more to come in the future.

A new video by production company Quick Feet documents Ennis' meteoric rise to prominence, starting in 2005 and continuing all the way through to her success at the London Olympic Games - with the promise of more to come following her career-defining success on home soil.

The 27-year-old goes in search of her second gold medal at the World Championships in Moscow this summer, and the behind-the-scenes video offers a rare glimpse of life away from the track - and the hard work put in by the Sheffield native to make it to the very top of her sport.

Highlights include a rather young-looking Ennis sheepishly stepping in front of the camera in 2005, her joy at graduating from University in Sheffield in 2007, and the Olympic star being greeted in her home town after winning World Championship gold in 2009.

The pinnacle of her career, gold last summer at the Olympics, is of course charted, as is the hard work in training that has underpinned her success throughout her career.
