Jessica Ennis started off what has become known as Super Saturday in the 2012 London Olympics by winning Gold. Jessica’s 6,955 point score, which saw her defeat her nearest pursuer Germany’s Lilli Schwarzkopf, by a massive 306 points, topped her own British record.
Jessica has now won the European, world and Olympic titles.
Over 80,000' spectators cheered on the mixed-race Heptathelete from Sheffield who later told Absolute Radio host Johnny Vaughan: 'I'm still in shock. It's been a whirlwind and I'm just blown away by how many people are here.'
Jessica has not only become an inspiration for millions, Mo Farah, who also picked up gold on Saturday for the 10,000 meters admitted she had inspired him just before his race.
Speaking to BBC Sport Mo said: 'I saw Jess with a flag and knew she must have won gold and I just felt I had to win.'
Now after years of intense training Jessica says she's looking forward to chilling out. she recently told Now magazine: 'I'm definitely going to relax, eat lots of rubbish food, have a few glasses of wine and enjoy this moment for as long as possible.'
