Laura Muir wins 1500m & 3000m titles in Belgrade

Muir not only proved herself capable of dealing with the pressure of being the favourite, but that she can also defeat some of the world’s best middle distance runners in a variety of ways.

While she broke the CRs in both events, she also set a new NR of 4:02.39min over 1,500m.

“I knew I had the kick so I just waited and went for it,” said Muir after the 3000m final; who acknowledged that her exploits will now ramp up the pressure ahead of the IAAF World Championships in London later this year. “You can’t go winning medals and breaking records and not raise expectations, but I’ll take it all in my stride. I take it as support, not pressure.”
