411: Ennis has recently changed her hurdling technique so she attacks the first barrier more.
Plans for the Summer Games: “So much that can go right, so much that can go wrong. I just don’t think it’s healthy to really fixate on winning that medal. I just focus on the here and now. Competing in London does bring more pressure but as an athlete, an Olympic Games is the ultimate competition.” (Sun)
