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.

The British star had promised in the build up to the meeting that she was ready to break records and she did not disappoint. Jones collected the full points though in the match, since Ennis was only racing as a guest.

Germany’s Caroline Nytra finished third in the race in 8.08secs, while Sarah Claxton was fourth in 8.20secs.

The men’s race went to American David Oliver who posted 7.58secs to win after rocketing from the blocks.

The American collected five-points when beating Germany’s Helge Schwarzer (7.68).

Jamaica’s Novlene Williams, competing for the Commonwealth team, won the women’s 400m in 52.83secs, beating USA’s Debbie Dunn (53.15) and Victoria Barr of Britain (53.83).
