Sir Mo Farah was the star attraction at the Muller Indoor athletics Grand Prix in Birmingham this weekend.
Billed as his last indoor event before he concentrates on the road, Sir Mo delighted the packed arena when he rounded off the days events with a 5000 meter win in record time.
Sir Mo hit the front with around 17 laps to go with Albert Rop on his heels until Faras’ trademark final sprint saw him safely home with a new British Indoor record of 13.09.16.
Laura Muir was also a class above the field, beating Kelly Holmes’ 13 year old British 1000 meter record and also setting a new European record of 2.31.93.
Holmes had held the record since 2004 but Muir, roared on by the Birmingham crowd the determined Scott recorded the second fastest time in history.
Andrew Pozzi showed why he is becoming favourite to win the European Championships in Belgrade by winning the Mens 60 meter hurdles. Pozzi finished in a time of 7.43 improving on his world lead.
Pavel Maslak showed why he’s the World Indoor Champion, winning the Mens 400 Meters final in a time of 45.89 ahead of Luguelin Santos from the Dominican Republic. Maslaks’ win in Birmingham secures the IAAF World tour title for the Czech.
Cas Loxsom from the USA recorded the fastest time in the world this year so far. Leading from the front he ran an impressive 1.46.13 in the Mens 800 meters Final.
