Jessica Ennis admits that improvements are needed if she is to win gold at the London Olympics.

Great Britain's Jessica Ennis has admitted that she needs to learn if she is to win gold at the Olympic Games later this year.

The 26-year-old followed up her heptathlon silver medal at the world championships in Daegu last year with another second-place finish in the pentathlon at an indoor event in Istanbul yesterday afternoon.

Despite admitting that she was happy with her two-medal haul, Ennis has confessed that improvements are needed if she is to go one better in London.

"I need to make sure I learn from these experiences, get it right and turn silver into gold this summer," she said. "I am happy because two silver medals at world champs is great, but I would have loved to have won a gold medal.

"There's disappointment because I wanted to come here and retain my title, but I had some good performances today.

"I believe things happen for a reason and hopefully that reason is going to become clear later on in the year."

Ennis has never competed at an Olympic Games.
