US track and field fans will get their first opportunity to see Jessica Ennis, the world Heptathlon and Pentathlon gold medallist, in action when she competes in a three-event challenge at the adidas Grand Prix in New York.

Ennis will debut on American soil in a specially arranged contest featuring herself and the host nation's number one, Olympic heptathlon silver medallist Hyleas Fountain.

Although not an IAAF Diamond League event, the opportunity to pit Ennis against Fountain is a very welcome promotional addition to the programme in the 14-event series.
