Jessica Ennis: Set new personal best and British record
Jessica Ennis provided arguably the greatest moment of the Games so far when she completed a brilliant victory in the heptathlon on Saturday. Here we take a look back on how she won her gold.
100m hurdles: Ennis wins her heat in a sensational 12.54 seconds, a time which won gold in the individual event in Beijing and is the fastest ever recorded in a heptathlon. The massive personal best also gives Ennis the British record and 1,195 points to lead by 17 from Canada's Jessica Zelinka.
High jump: The Sheffield athlete clears 1.86m and is agonisingly close to getting over 1.89m. American Hyleas Fountain also clears 1.86m to lie 25 points behind in second. Ennis has 2249 to Fountain's 2224.
Shot: A solid 14.28m is not enough to maintain the lead, with Austra Skujyte throwing a heptathlon world best of 17.31m to move from 139 points behind Ennis to 64 in front (3126 to 3062).
200m: A second PB of the day of 22.83secs gives Ennis a lead of 184 points over Skujyte with a best ever first-day total of 4,158. Skujyte has 3974 with Canada's Jessica Zelinka third with 3903.
Long jump: Ennis hits the board perfectly to leap 6.40m in the second round and improves to 6.48m in the third to extend her lead over Skujyte to 258 points (5159 to 4901).
Javelin: Banishes the memories of the terrible javelin performance in Daegu which cost her the world title last year, throwing 46.61m, 45.99m and then a PB of 47.49m in the final round. Skuyjte managed 51.13m to close the gap by 70 points, but Ennis takes a massive 188-point lead into the final event.
800m: Ennis goes out hard and completes the opening lap in an amazing 61.89s. After being overtaken on the second lap the 26-year-old refuses to be beaten and storms down the home straight to win her heat in 2:08.65. The result gives her a new PB and British record of 6,955 points and a winning margin of 327 points over world champion Tatyana Chernova.
