Olympic Dreams - Jessica Ennis
Age 21, Heptathlon
Born Sheffield, member of City of Sheffield Athletic Club

Seven events in two days is not for your average athlete, but Ennis is far from average.

She started running aged 10, and quickly added throwing and jumping to her repertoire.

Ennis won Commonwealth bronze in her first major championships last year, and she has already qualified for the Beijing Olympics.

Having recently graduated in Psychology, she can now focus on knocking her heroine Carolina Kluft off the top of the podium.
