Jessica Ennis will not run in the Olympics 100m hurdles after being crowned the best all round athlete in the world on Saturday night.
The 26-year-old from Sheffield considered competing in the event, which starts on Monday, after running a personal best time of 12.54 seconds in the first discipline of the heptathlon, which she won in emphatic style.
"I did think about it, especially when I ran a personal best," she told BBC Sport.
"But for me it was just about the heptathlon. I'm more than happy with that and I just need to rest now."
Ennis, who missed out on competing in the Beijing Olympics because of injury, clocked a time in the first event of the heptathlon that would have won gold at the 2008 Games. It was also a world best in the multi-event discipline.
But the Sheffield athlete has stated that she wants to rest and revel in becoming Olympic champion for the first time.
"Right now I just want to enjoy this moment for as long as I can, I want to spend some time with my family and then just have a bit of a break. It has been such a long build-up and stressful. I am looking forward to relaxing."
Having been billed as the 'face' of the Games, Ennis said she was relieved to have won in a home Olympics and said she kept the medal by the side of her bed overnight.
"I slept for about two hours, I just kept looking at my medal and thinking about what I've achieved. I don't think it's sunk in yet. I looked at it as soon as I woke up and I'll look at it every day.
"There has been lots and lots of pressure and everyone just expected me to win. It's been quite hard to deal with that but I've had great people around me.
"I just wanted to get focused and use the positivity from everyone around the country and use that to get this gold medal."
On her plans for the immediate future, she said: "I'm definitely going to relax, eat lots of rubbish food, have a few glasses of wine and enjoy this moment for as long as possible."
