IAAF To Reallocate Six Indoor Championships In Birminghan

IAAF To Reallocate Six Indoor Championships In Birminghan

Laura Muir carried the hopes of Great Britain going into the opening night of the World Indoor Championships at Arena Birmingham but the Scottish middle-distance runner had to settle for a bronze medal in the women's 3000m final as Genzebe Dibaba took gold.

It doesn't match the colour of Katarina Johnson-Thompson's gold, but pound for pound, considering the strength of the opposition, this was the British performance of the Championships.

"We are delighted to be hosting the European Indoor Athletics Championships 2019", said Billy Garrett, director of sport and events at Glasgow Life and co-chair of the Glasgow 2019 steering committee.

Niyonsaba will be glad for the absence of Caster Semenya, who has been her nemesis in recent years, including beating her into second place at London 2017. the only question mark around her defence stems from the fact she hasn't set an outdoor time this year.

"My performance from the British championships to the Indoor Grand Prix in Glasgow at the weekend showed improvement but it was still not at the level I demand of myself", the 31-year-old said in a statement.

She said: 'I thought if I could scrape a medal that would be great but to get a silver medal is better still.

He said the aim of the changes was to reduce the burden of regulation "without losing any safety and soundness". The second leg of Powell's testimony, an opportunity to clarify comments made on Tuesday, is due at 3pm GMT.

The 24-year-old said: "This time yesterday I was in a taxi half way down the M6". The Ethiopian's 400m up to the bell was a vicious 62.43 and she was now clear but Hassan and Muir were in hot pursuit and began to close along the back straight. I knew if I made the right moves, I could get another medal, and improve on the bronze'.

Young added: "It was maybe the most stacked field of the championships, unless you also include the (women's) 1500m too!" I know I've been there or thereabouts, it was about time I got on the podium.

Coleman is the red hot favourite to win gold in Birmingham.

Ujah failed to reach the world championships 100m final by 0.02 seconds but did win the prestigious Diamond League final in Zurich previous year.

From an global perspective the focus will be on Christian Coleman, the American sprinter hailed by many as a potential successor to Usain Bolt after breaking the 20-year-old indoor 60m world record in February. "I'm excited for it; I love racing so I'm excited to race again", Houlihan said". It is a really competitive event - the 60m hurdles indoors is always really tough but I am ready for the challenge'.
