BIRMINGHAM (GBR): European indoor 3000 m champion Adel Mechaal is hoping to replicate that performance on the global stage at the World Indoor Championships, informs MARCA. “I’m going for everything, I think I can achieve it, I’m proud to be one of the Spanish contenders for a medal, and I want to try it, also to get rid of the thorn in London, where I lost the medal by a tenth,” said Mechaal, who was fourth in the 1500m in London last year.
