SHEFFIELD, England -- Former Olympic heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis-Hill announced her retirement from track and field on Thursday, ending the career of one of Britains most successful sportswomen. Chimezie Metu Jersey .The 30-year-old Ennis-Hill won the heptathlon gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics, won a second world championship gold a year after giving birth to her first child, and won silver at the this years Rio de Janeiro Olympics.Ive always said I want to leave my sport on a high and have no regrets, she said in a post on Twitter and Instagram , and I can truly say that.The poster girl for the London Games, Ennis-Hill is among the most popular sportspeople in Britain and widely regarded as a role model to upcoming athletes.Her record as an athlete is phenomenal and thats without considering the challenges of returning from pregnancy to win world gold and Olympic silver, said Neil Black, performance director at British Athletics. Id like to thank her not only for her contribution to the GB team over the years, but additionally for being a great person to work with, know and support.Ennis-Hill took time out of the sport to give birth to son Reggie -- forcing her to miss the 2014 Commonwealth Games -- and hinted about ending her 11-year professional career immediately after winning the silver medal in Rio, behind Nafissatou Thiam of Belgium.From my first world title in Berlin 2009 to Rio 2016, Im so fortunate to have had such an amazing career within the sport I love and this has been one of the toughest decisions Ive had to make, she said. But I know that retiring now is right.An excellent sprint hurdler and long jumper, Ennis-Hill broke through in 2006 by winning bronze in the heptathlon at her only Commonwealth Games.Other career highlights included winning heptathlon gold at the 2010 European Championships and winning the world indoor pentathlon title the same year. She dominated the heptathlon between 2009-12, a period that culminated in Ennis-Hill handling home pressure to win Olympic gold.

David Robinson Jersey . -- Ohio States Urban Meyer has never had any issue acclimating to the biggest stages in college football. http://www.cheapspursjerseys.com/?tag=cheap-patty-mills-jersey .C. - The Carolina Hurricanes have placed backup goalie Anton Khudobin on injured reserve with an unspecified lower-body injury. NSW State of Origin coach Laurie Daley feels Adam Reynolds is the man to end Parramattas halfback curse.Daley, who coached Reynolds at Origin level this year, believes the South Sydney No.7 would be the perfect foil next season for the just re-signed Corey Norman.However, he prefaced his selection on whether the Eels, who watched marquee man Kieran Foran dramatically walk away this year, considered themselves one piece away from contending for a premiership.The Eels 11 wins this year would have had them in contention for the top eight if not for a 12-point deduction for salary-cap cheating.It depends if they think they need two-three years to win a competition or whether they think one player can get them over the line straight away, Daley said on Wednesday evening on Fox Sports NRL 360 program.The guy that Id be looking at right there and then would be Adam Reynolds.For me, hes 25; hes won a premiership; he controls a game, great kicking game.Reynolds heads a long list of playmakers off contract at the end of next season, including Mitchell Moses, Luke Brooks, Jack Bird, Ashley Taylor, Ben Hunt, Anthony Milford and Mitchell Pearce.Mercurial stars Johnathan Thurrston and Shaun Johnson will also be free but are considered untouchable. Cheap NBA Jerseys. They may have to wait 12 months, Daley said.But the big question will be, obviously theyre spending a lot of money keeping Corey Norman there. So the next halfback to come in would have to complement his style of football.Convincing Reynolds to leave Redfern could be a stumbling block, however, given the Rabbitohs have already let Luke Keary go this year and have rookie Cody Walker pencilled in to start at pivot.Greg Inglis could also be an option to move to the halves.Hell probably stay there at Souths, but hed be the one that Id look at and go, you know what, I reckon hed form a good combination with Corey Norman, Daley said.The Eels have money to burn after this years cap scandal forced Nathan Peats, Junior Paulo and Ryan Morgan to depart the club mid-season.Foran walked away to address personal issues, Anthony Watmough also retired on medical grounds, while former star Jarryd Hayne spurned a big-money deal to come back to the NRL with Gold Coast.
