Following Kelly Sotherton‘s shocking announcement of switching back to the multi-events, there could be an interesting contest set up for the two places on offer behind Jessica Ennis in the heptathlon for the British team in the Olympics in London.

Apart from the former Olympic bronze medallist herself, Commonwealth champion and poetry lover Louise Hazell, holding the edge as owner of the Olympic A standard already, is an established serious contender for a berth while rising U20 star Katarina Johnson-Thompson could also enter the fray if she can range closer to her PBs across disciplines in a heptathlon, performing well within herself in her PB of 5787pts, and could improve substantially a season on.

So which two do you think are going to follow Jess into the arena of the Olympic stadium at Stratford?
