Jessica Ennis Sets Record And Beat Lolo Jones In Glasgow

Great Britain’s multi-athlete super star Jessica Ennis defeated favourite Lolo Jones in the women’s 60 metres hurdles dash at Saturday’s Aviva International Match Glasgow.

Ennis, competing as a guest athlete at the meeting sped to a national record and new world leading time of 7.95seconds to win the event ahead of reigning World Indoor champion Jones, who was competing for the United States.
