Jessica Ennis has said that she will continue her career in the heptathlon after winning gold at London 2012.
Ennis produced a dominant performance to claim the Olympic title but insists that she still has ambitions in the sport.
She told BBC Sport: "I'm still just really emotional. All the pressure is off my shoulders and I have my medal and I can just enjoy it. I've got a permanent smile on and my jaw is aching. It's a brilliant feeling.
"This year I'm now going to have a rest. But next year it's the World Championships for us in Moscow. I definitely feel I want to carry on with the heptathlon and see if I can get closer to the 7,000 points mark. But when my body starts to ache I'd really like to give the hurdles a go."
Ennis has previously considered entering the 100m hurdles and registered a time of 12.54s during London 2012, just two tenths of a second outside the time set in the final by gold medallist Sally Pearson.
