Ennis makes sparkling start to indoor season

Far from the madding crowd at a frozen Holyrood Park on Saturday, and the anguish of Mo Farah and Kenenisa Bekele, some joy for the golden girl of British athletics in the warmth of the Seb Coe Building at the UK Athletics National Performance Centre in Loughborough. While Farah was fading from first to third in the 4.2 kilometres short race at the Bupa Great Edinburgh Cross Country meeting, leaving the course seeking medical tests, and the great Bekele was suffering a rare defeat, finishing fourth in the 9km main race at Holyrood, Jessica Ennis was opening her indoor season in sparkling form in the low-key Loughborough University Open meeting.

Dasaolu breaks into world class

James Dasaolu is not the first British sprinter to break 10.10 seconds for the 100m. In fact, the Croydon Harrier became the tenth to do so when he sped to victory in 10.09sec in the EAP Swiss Meeting in Geneva on Saturday. Still, in breaking through to ground classed as world-class territory in the sprinting game, the 21-year-old has become the first Briton to get there without a background as a prodigy in the schoolboy or junior ranks. He has also run faster than Allan Wells, the Olympic 100m champion of 1980, ever managed – his best time was 10.11sec, which is still a Scottish record.
