Jessica Ennis - A marvellous gold
She is just 5 feet 5, but full of heart and dedication and sweetness. Her heptathlon triumph was elating. It is simply a joy to watch her in the 100m hurdles, the high jump, the long jump, the javelin throw, the 200m, the shot put, and the 800m as you can here.
She is a graduate of the University of Sheffield and already making contributions to the fields of journalism and psychology. She is an inspiration.
