Laura MUIR - Great Britain & N.I. - Olympic Games 1500m silver medal.

Laura Muir pictured in her semi-final of the 800m (inset image the finish line

of the final).  Her PB of 1:58.42 was set in 2019. However, she set an indoor best

in 2021 of 1:58.44. In 2021 did not contest the 1500m (winner in 2016 & 2015).


As the Olympic Games got closer Laura decided not to run in the 800m but just

the 1500m.

History shows that was a good choice - she won an  Olympic silver medal

and improved her UK record of 3:55.22 in the final.
