Jessica Ennis-Hill has confirmed that she is to compete at the Glasgow Indoor Grand Prix on February 20.

The Olympic and world heptathlon champion is set to contest the 60m hurdles in Scotland.

“I am really looking forward to competing in the Glasgow Indoor Grand Prix – this fixture always kick-starts my year,” said Ennis-Hill.

“Training is going well and it will be good to get out there and compete with some great athletes and really test myself.

“Olympic year is a big year for all of us and the first competition brings with it trepidation and excitement.”

The Indoor Grand Prix, ranked as the world’s best indoor event in the world for the past ten years, will be held in Glasgow for the first time in 2016 as the city alternates hosting the event with Birmingham up to 2020.

Niels de Vos, chief executive of British Athletics, said: “Jessica Ennis-Hill is one of the biggest stars in British sport. The Glasgow Indoor Grand Prix will provide her with an opportunity to test herself and we wish her every success in Olympic year.

“She is a winner and a tremendous role-model for athletics and for Britain. The Glasgow Indoor Grand Prix will again showcase the city’s passion for major athletics events and is a sold-out success.”

Other athletes so far confirmed for the meeting, which will be the final event in the IAAF’s new World Indoor Tour, include Mo Farah and Greg Rutherford.
