Magnificent Muir leads GB medal rush with second gold

Laura Muir headlined a GB medal rush on the final evening of the European Athletics Indoor Championship as she made history by claiming her second gold in Glasgow in scintillating style.

Having romped to 3000m glory on Friday evening, Muir rounded out the Championships with an equally dominant 1500m triumph – becoming the first athlete to do a double-double at the European Indoors, having defended both titles she won in Belgrade in 2017.

The home favourite was one of two British gold medallists across the evening, as Shelayna Oskan-Clarke stormed to 800m glory.

There were also four silver medals added to the haul – Jamie Webb in the men’s 800m, Holly Bradshaw in the pole vault, Tim Duckworth in the heptathlon and the women’s 4x400m relay quartet.

That meant GB won 12 medals in total, their record haul at the Championships, and Muir was ecstatic to triumph once again after clocking 4:05.92 to beat second-placed Sofia Ennaoui by 3.38 seconds.
