The golden girl of British track and field is undoubtedly the glamorous hepthathlete, Jessica Ennis. The Sheffield-raised superstar was ranked number one in the world in 2009, 2010 and 2011 - a period in which she captured the 2009 world championship in Berlin. However, she was narrowly beaten to gold by Russian rival Tatyana Chernova, setting up a thrilling showdown in London 2012.
