2020 Glasgow Diary: Laura Muir wants 1000m W indoor record, plan is to attack it on 15 Feb 2020


If you have not seen Laura Muir compete indoors in the UK, you have truly missed an amazing experience. The fans, especially in Birmingham, have gone nuts over Laura. In Glasgow, Scotland, the home crowd is even more boisterous, as their favorite athlete churns up the Mondo 200m track and the Emirates facility.

2019 was a bit strange for Laura Muir: she won the 1,500m/3,000m at the European Indoor in March, and then, in mid Summer, as she rounded into shape, Muir injured a leg, and even with that, she took 5th in the second best time of her life, 3:55.76.

Laura Muir is coached by Andy Young, a fine coach, who continues to develop the fine Scottish athlete. Muir has much pressure on her. Can she medal in the global championships? I think so.

Muir wants to attack 1000 m World Inoor record
GLASGOW (GBR): Laura Muir will try to break the world indoor 1000 m record at the Muller Indoor Grand Prix Glasgow on 15 February 2020. The double European indoor champion will attack the 2:30.94 set by Maria Mutola in 1999. "I feel that going quicker than 2:30.94 is a real possibility, and I can't think of a better place to go for the record than in Glasgow and at such a world-class event," she said.
