Heptathlon star Jessica Ennis has spoken of her desire to compete for more medals.
The 26-year-old, who won gold in the heptathlon with a British record 6,955 points, has been enjoying time away from the track after her success in the Olympic stadium.
She was entered in the 100m hurdle event but withdrew after achieving her lifelong dream to become an Olympic champion.
Speaking to Sky's Kay Burley she said: "I'm really still on a massive high, I'm very excited and enjoying every moment of it.
"There was definitely a lot of pressure, everyone expected me to win the gold medal no matter what.
"I was physically and mentally drained from the two days (of competing) and I don't think my body would let me compete at the top level for the hurdles."
Since winning gold, the Sheffield athlete has been rewarded with spa treatments in London, enjoyed dinner with Jamie Oliver, been mentioned on EastEnders and even had a newborn baby named after her.
She has also been to a Stone Roses concert with fiance Andy Hill, whom she will marry in 2013.
Ennis said: "I have definitely had some rubbish food and a couple of glasses of wine and I look forward to having more glasses when I get back to Sheffield.
"I have achieved one of my greatest dreams, with my family in the crowd and the whole stadium singing the national anthem and that will stay with me forever."
And she sympathised with British athletes who had missed out on winning medals in London after she herself missed the Beijing Olympics with a foot injury.
She said: "It's very difficult. The Olympics comes round every four years and it's so hard to make sure everything goes right and you're ready for that one moment.
"I definitely plan to carry on competing. I've definitely got a few more years left in me."
