We love Karsten Warholm. He is a gutty athlete. He is speedy, he is agile, and he loves the sport!

Sergey Shubenkov is an gutty hurdler.

In 2012, he took the 2012 European Outdoor Championships. In 2013, Shubenkov won in Goteborg at the European Indoor. He added wins in 2014 Zurich, (EA Outdoor) and in 2015 Beijing (WA outdoor champs).

In 2017 London, Shubenkov took silver at the World Championships. In 2018, Sergey took the silver at the World Indoor in Brimingham, England, and in 2019, Sergey Shubenkov took silver in Doha at the World Championships.

Do not disount Sergey Shubenkov, he is dangerous anytime he ocmpetes.

Laura Muir had an excellent season in a strange season, mottled with a pandemic. In 2020, she had three outdoor 1,500m races this season, and her final 1,500m (3;57.40) she set the WL in 2020! Laura Muir races 5 times outdoors at 800m, with the slowest 800m at 2:00.49.

This season has been crazy, and in such a season, Laura Muir had an amazing time.
