Jessica Ennis has launched her heptathlon campaign in style as she came a narrow runner-up behind Hyleas Fountain in a huge SB and UK leading mark of 12.89 secs, the American sneaking victory by a mere two hundredths of a second.

That race was run into a -0.7m/sec headwind by the way, meaning that Jessica could have challenged Angie Thorp's UK record of 12.80 secs had it been the other way round! Such a shame, but a superb start for Jessica Ennis who lays the foundations to fulfil the ultimate target over the weekend; breaking Denise Lewis's UK Heptathlon record.

That 12.89 secs was worth 1141 pts that sees Jessica trail Hyleas Fountain by a mere 3 pts following the first discipline whereas Natalia Dobrynska has slipped way behind from the outset due to a very poor 14.13 secs in the previous heat, gathering just 960pts!

Tatyana Chernova did not get off to the best of starts either with 13.47 secs (-1.0) so the heptathlon tussle looks like turning into a two-horse race from the early days.

Louise Hazell ran a SB of 13.49 (0.1m/sec) for second in the earlier heat with Phylis Abgo fourth in 13.89 - I don't think she's going to be pleased with that but only the fact that she beat Dobrynska...

hyleas has run 12.78 and jessica 12.81 so 12.87 and 12.89 is about right! great start from them both. Not as good for Louise and Phylis as i'd hoped the hurdles are a strong event for them both. Louise lies 7th but I think she could have been closer to teh Belgium girl and Phylis only 16th. Chernova is already the one to watch a pb of 13.47... if she gets day one right that Jess will really struggle to beat her, her day two pbs 6.78, 54.49 and 2:06.50 are all amazing!

Actually, that was an equal PB for Chernova but that's not good enough for me, she needed a 13.3 at least to cope with the anticipated pace of Jessica through the heptathlon...

Bryan Clay and Trey Hardee sweep to 10.35 and 10.39 secs in the main heat of the 100m (0.2m/sec) for a superb start to the decathlon!

that will give Jess the confidence now to go high, fountain only managing 1.79. I still think if Chernova gets her day one around her pbs, she will be the main challenge on day 2. No one else is capable of 6.70+ 50+ and sub 2:08.

The event will be decided on the second day, in my opinion, and will be likely based on the top 3/4 athletes performances in the long jump and javelin.

Dismissing other athletes as we note already is ill advised after 1 event

The wind was +0.7 and not - 0.7. in the hurdles as told to me by someone who is there. he may be wrong!!

Frankly, I would not bet on anybody, yet.

In a one off diamond league race against the best in the world with decent conditions and a 1.5 tailwind no reason she cant run 12.7!!

I agree 12.7 would not shock me at all for Ennis... and if Eunice Barber can run a 12.6s why Ennis cant is beyond me...
BTW 1.91 now for Ennis!

Chernova always flops when the pressure is on to perform and I would expect her to slip up in at least a discipline on the first day, further her 200m is way down on Jessica's. She could end up with a huge deficit to make up at the end of the first day and I really doubt she's got the mentality to haul up back into it. Furthermore, if Jessica pulls a 6.4m and a 46-47m in the long jump and the javelin she's going to clinch the win no matter what the Russian comes up with.

1.91 is good shame she couldnt get 1.94 that would have been huge points for her! BUT its a huge lead at the moment...

1) Jessica Ennis 2260
2) Hyleas Fountain 2110
3) Tatyana Chernova 2058

12) Natallia Dobrynska 1926 :shock:
19) Phyllis Agbo 1849 :x
24) Louise Hazel 1730 is she injured i wonder?

Jessica has already got a 160-point lead on Fountain and 202pts on Chernova, who got only 1.82m in the high jump. Dobrynska looks already out of it...
