KIRKCALDY (GBR): European indoor 1500m and 3000m champion Laura Muir will defend her 4km title at the Lindsays Short Course Championships in Kirkcaldy on Saturday, informs Scottish Athletics. "I've raced the 4k for the past few years and I really enjoy it. I always think cross country at this time of year helps give you a good base for the following season on the track. It's been a while because I've not raced since the World Champs- with the last one being the 5000m final," said Muir.

RunBlogRun opines: Laura Muir is back at it, running her first race since the loaded World Champs. I do not want to hear any more second guessing, as her 1500m/5000m double was a very good double and she came within two meters of the bronze medal. Muir is going to win global medals, she has the tools, and needs to get that racing experience with the likes of Semenya, Simpson, Cheruiyot. That is what London 2017 was all about. This is world class athletics, not pro wrestling. Watch her in 2020.
