Laura MUIR - Great Britain & N.I. - Fifth at 2019 World Championships

Laura Muir is pictured above beginning the 3rd. lap of the women's 1,500m

final. Despite a season best time she was unable to challenge for a medal

position such was the high standard of the race, as indicated below. Every

one of the first eight achieved a NR/PB/SB !  In fact Laura would have needed

to carve more than a second from her British record to have even been in

medal contention !
