EXCLUSIVE: Olympic gold medallist Jessica Ennis speaks to Marie Claire

We interviewed the amazing Jessica Ennis back in February ahead of London 2012

Here at Marie Claire we have been championing Jessica Ennis from day one and as soon as we heard she was to become the face of London 2012 we jumped at the chance to have a chat with the superstar heptathlete.

In February 2012, Jess Ennis became a Marie Claire cover girl, gracing our the special issue in an array of gorgeous, glamorous and powerful poses.

JESSICA ENNIS FOR MARIE CLAIRE

Now she’s got that hard-fought for and well-deserved Olympic gold medal under her belt – made all the more special given the tremendous pressure she was under to perform on her home turf – we look back at the day we were lucky enough to meet the lovely Jessica Ennis.

You’ve done us proud, Jess!
