Jessica Ennis's coach Toni Minichiello believes that there is "no reason" why she cannot compete in the heptathlon at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
The 26-year-old won gold in the event in front of her own supporters at the recent Games in London.
Following that success, speculation had claimed that the Sheffield-born athlete would now turn her attention to the 100m hurdles.
However, Minichiello feels that Ennis will continue to battle it out over seven disciplines in Brazil.
"I sat down with her before she went away and we had a discussion about the future," he told BBC Radio Sheffield. "I see no reason why she can't carry on with the heptathlon until Rio 2016 because she's not had many injuries.
"She's got a good team around her and it's important we keep that team together. I think she'll definitely be in the heptathlon for the next four years."
Ennis is currently in training for next year's World Championships in Moscow.
