According to logic, Jess Ennis-Hill should never have been any good at the Heptathlon, she's far too small. Thankfully either nobody told her that, or she chose to ignore them
It would have been great to see her sign off with gold, but looking at the other things she's done in the last couple of years (e.g. taking time out to have a baby!) she hasn't done too badly has she?
I stand by my previous, apparently provocative, question about judging the effort people have put in. Even those who 'fail' at the big events wouldn't have got there in the first place without incredible levels of dedication. Many of we armchair athletes are far too quick to criticise. Maybe K J-T will blossom once she's out of the shadow of Jess. It's one hell of an act to follow.
