Ennis-Hill 6/1 For Gold In Rio

After qualifying for the Olympics with her performance in Gotzis, William Hill make Jessica Ennis-Hill a 6/1 shot to win gold in Rio next year. She is 6/5 to win a medal of any colour and 8/13 to fail to finish in the top three.

“Jess has a long way to go until she is back to her best but in qualifying for the Olympics early, she has plenty of time to focus on next summer now,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “We have her more likely to fail to place at this moment in time but there is every chance she could prove us wrong.”
