Jessica Ennis-Hill to aim for Olympic heptathlon qualification in Götzis — Jessica Ennis-Hill will compete in the heptathlon for the first time since those giddy, gold‑mining days of London 2012 after she declared her body fit and ready for the prestigious Hypo-Meeting in Götzis at the end of the month. Her goals - nearly three years since her greatest triumph - will be smaller but no less single-minded.

Jessica Ennis-Hill’s return to heptathlon at Gotzis in the balance — Jessica Ennis-Hill's hopes of returning to the heptathlon next week - in what would be her first multi-event competition since winning gold at London 2012 - are in the balance after the latest stage of her comeback offered more questions than answers.

Justin Gatlin gets faster with age but trust fails to keep pace — Moments after pulverising a high-class field in Doha, Justin Gatlin turned his fingers into pistols and smiled as he pretended to shoot at the TV cameras. "I wanted to make a statement to the world," he said. Whatever you think of the American, it was hard to argue and it was also some statement.

Jessica Ennis-Hill continues competitive comeback at Loughborough — Jessica Ennis-Hill was all smiles after her comeback in front of 25,000 fans in Manchester last Saturday, but beneath her sunny exterior lies a hard-nosed realist. So when the Olympic heptathlon champion returns to action at the Loughborough International Athletics meeting on Sunday, she will not only be shaking off the cobwebs but quietly crunching the numbers.

Justin Gatlin leads world-class field from gun to record 100m personal best — Justin Gatlin laid down a staggering marker for the new season by running a personal best of 9.74sec to win the men's 100m in Doha. The controversial American, who has twice been banned for doping offences, led from the gun to smash a world-class field to smithereens.

Mo Farah targets European 3,000m record before Doha Diamond League meeting — Mo Farah admits that the European 3,000m record is in his sights when he gets his outdoor track season under way in Doha on Friday. The 32-year-old says he wants to "test himself" - and, having broken the world indoor record over two miles and the European half-marathon record so far in 2015, believes he can take a serious crack at the Belgian Mohammed Mourhit's European 3,000m record of 7:26.62.

Emily Scarratt: England Sevens can taste Twickenham glory in runup to Rio — After England lifted their first women's rugby World Cup in 20 years last August, one image seemed to be played on loop for days: that of Emily Scarratt collecting the ball just outside Canada's 22 and then - in a feverish blur - barging through the gain line, shaking off one oppressor and sidestepping another, and leaping over the line for the match-winning try.

Katarina Johnson-Thompson versus Jessica Ennis-Hill showdown in balance — The prospect of Jessica Ennis-Hill and Katarina Johnson-Thompson meeting in a highly anticipated heptathlon showdown in Götzis this month appears to be receding after it was revealed that Johnson-Thompson has been suffering from a minor problem in a knee and only has a 70-30 chance of competing.

‘Disappointing’ Jessica Ennis-Hill could delay her heptathlon return — Jessica Ennis-Hill could delay her return to the heptathlon until later in the summer after running a disappointing time on her comeback, her coach, Toni Minichiello, has revealed. Ennis-Hill, who has not competed in a heptathlon since winning gold at London 2012, ran 13.14sec for the 100m hurdles in the Manchester City Games on Saturday - more than half a second outside her personal best.

Premier League TV viewers crave familiarity - not unpredictability — The newspaper on my desk shows Chelsea in first place, Manchester City second, and Arsenal and Manchester United sat snug in the Champions League spots. Meanwhile Liverpool are fifth, Tottenham sixth, and QPR and Burnley in the bottom two. Oh, one more thing: the date on the top of the page is 5 August 2014.

@AFHStewart It's really nicely written. And depressing not only about cuts/target culture but the innate conservatism of upper/middle ranks
