Jessica Ennis-Hill to miss 2014 Commonwealth Games

Jessica Ennis-Hill will miss 2014 Commonwealth Games as she is expecting her first baby with her husband Andy but she will still be going to the Olympics in Rio 2016.

"I am sorry I won't be in Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games," she said.


"But I know it will be an amazing occasion. I will be at home awaiting the arrival of a little Ennis-Hill."

England's Ennis-Hill won bronze at the 2006 Commonwealth Games but this won't be happening this year as she is expecting the birth of her first child.

"My plans for 2014 have been completely turned upside down, but having had two weeks to think about things I am 100% set on returning to full-time athletics once our first baby is born and to go for a second gold medal at the Rio Olympics in 2016."
