BIG SCREEN: Come watch Jess in action at Olympics at ‘Jesstival’ - VIDEO

SHEFFIELD’S bright star in the Olympics will face her touchest challenge to date when she competes at London 2012 Olympics today.

Don Valley Stadium has erected a big screen in the middle of the stadium and are inviting fans of Sheffield athlete Jessica Ennis to come and watch her performance for free.

“This venue has special meaning to Jess as it is the stadium she was herself discovered in when she nine-years-old during a sports taster course,” said Dave Healy, organiser of this weekend’s Sheftival Festival.

“While we’ve been preparing for this weekend’s festival, we’ve been able to catch glimpses of Jess in Don Valley, pounding the track and getting ready.

“It’s the perfect venue to come and watch her, hopefully, bring Olympic Gold victory to Sheffield!”
