Too Fat!!!How Stupid.
This is a story about what is in my view utter stupidity.
Jessica Ennis is a British athlete, she competes in the Heptathlon (that's seven events over two days).
The current world champion at Heptathlon is the Russian woman Tatyana Chernova.
Chernova 24, is 6' 2" tall and weighs 138 lbs.
Ennis 26 is 5' 5" tall and weighs 125 lbs.
At the weekend these two women competed alongside the rest of the worlds elite heptathletes in a warm up Heptathlon in Gotzis in Austria.
Jessica Ennis won. Over the two days she amassed a score of 6,906 points. (The scores are worked out using a very complicated formulae that I don't understand, and i'm not bad at maths.)
This score, was the best by any woman for five years, and Ennis became only the eigth woman in Heptathlon history to score over 9,000 points.
So far so good, but here's the utterly atupid part. Having just established herself as one of the all time greats in Heptathlon, there is now a debate going on about Jessica Ennis's weight.
The question being asked is,. Is jessica Ennis too fat.
If anyone can see any sense at all in this question, I'd love to hear it.
