Laura Muir

Laura Muir has been in outstanding form all summer, setting personal bests at 800m and 3,000m, and the 22-year-old produced the run of her life as she smashed through the four minutes barrier to climb to second place behind Kelly Holmes on the UK all-time list. In Paris Diamond League last year the Dundee Hawkhill Harrier broke Yvonne Murray’s Scottish record with a time of 4:00.07 and in the latest IAAF Diamond League meeting of the 2015 season she improved that to 3:58.66.

In doing so, Muir became the fifth British woman to break four minutes and the second fastest in history, behind Holmes, whose British record stands at 3:57.90.

Laura’s time of 3:58.66 is also a new Hawks record.
