The first year of motherhood is one of trials and tribulations and one of the hardest (but most amazing) years of most mums’ lives.

But imagine training for the World Athletic Championships just months after giving birth?

Not only did Olympian Jessica Enni-Hill jump into her strict training regime again, but she then achieved super human status by winning a gold medal just one year on from becoming a mum.

Speaking after completing the gruelling heptathlon at the Beijing tournament this afternoon, the 29-year-old said: “It’s definitely one of the greatest moments of my career. I still can’t believe it.

“We only wanted to come here if I was ready to contend for a medal and we spoke about a bronze medal – that would be amazing – and a silver medal, but we never spoke about a gold medal. I just thought it was a little beyond me this year.”

Jess became mum to son Reggie last summer. Her little one arrived one year after she married childhood sweetheart Andy Hill.

The athlete became a household name after winning gold in the 2012 olympics, inspiring women up and down the UK to get into athletics.
