Jessica Ennis: World Championships the season's goal

Olympic heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis will not compete indoors in 2013 but will focus on the World Championships in Moscow this summer as her goal.

Ennis had left the decision very much open after winning gold at the Olympics in August 2012.

Ennis said: "After the incredible high of the Olympics and the post-Games celebrations I went back into tough winter training with an open mind on whether or not I would want to compete indoors this year.

"Training has been going well, but I feel that my focus really has to be attempting to win another world title in Russia this summer and not the short-term indoor season."

Head Coach Peter Eriksson said: "Jess is a very mature and seasoned athlete who is focused on performing at her best in major championships.

"We 100% support her decision in this respect, and look forward to seeing her in action later this year in the build up to the World Championships in Moscow."

Ennis' first competition of 2013 is likely to be the Edinburgh Women's League on June 8 and her first heptathlon in Tallinn, Estonia at the end of June.
