Ennis coach slams overweight slursReported by France 24 on Friday, 25 May 2012 (on May 25, 2012)
Jessica Ennis's coach has slammed a senior figure at UK Athletics for describing the British heptathlon star as overweight ahead of the London Olympics.
Toni Minichiello told the Guardian on Friday that an unnamed "high-ranking person" within the governing body said the 26-year-old former world champion had put on too much weight in the build-up to the 2012 Games.
Minichiello claimed the slurs were part of increased intrusion into Ennis' preparation for the Olympics from "people in fairly high positions, who should know better".
