Irresistible From Laura Muir

The brilliant Laura Muir was in irresistible form during the women's 3000 metres at the British Athletics Indoor Championships as she pulled away from the pack with about 600m left and she soared clear from there on out.

The European record holder finished in 8:46.71 to secure victory and her place in the British team at the World Athletics Championships in March, while Eilish McGolgan was second (8:50.49) and Rosie Clarke took third (8:52.49).

Philip And KJT Too Strong At The British Indoor Championships

Katarina Johnson-Thompson was completely dominant during the course of the women's long jump at the British Athletics Indoor Championships as she leapt a season's best 6.71m to secure a comfortable gold medal.

The 25-year-old, who now trains in France, opened the final with a jump of 6.62m and she bettered that with her effort of 6.71m, which was more than enough to beat Jazmin Sawyers, who continues to struggle to rediscover the form that saw her jump 6.71m last winter.

Moments later, Asha Philip booked her place on the British team for the World Championships at the beginning of March as she won the women's 60m final in sensational style, clocking a time of 7.12 seconds.

Pozzi Pips King In Thrilling 60m Hurdles Final In Birmingham

Andrew Pozzi won a thrilling men's 60m hurdles final at the British Indoor Athletics Championships as he overcame a woeful start to pip David King to glory at the Arena Birmingham.

Pozzi made a shocking start out of the blocks but he produced a superb comeback to secure a season's best time of 7.58 seconds, which was enough to guarantee his place in Great Britain's squad for the World Athletics Indoor Championships, which are coming up in Birmingham from 2-4 March.

Silver medallist King also guaranteed his selection for the Worlds by matching his personal best of 7.63, which was well within the qualifying mark of 7.70 seconds that was required.

Greg Rutherford Secures Long Jump Gold At The British Championships

Greg Rutherford returned to competitive action by winning long jump gold at the British Athletics Indoor Championships, with a best jump of 7.80m enough to secure victory at the Arena Birmingham.

The 31-year-old was appearing in his first event since May 2017 but the 2012 Olympic gold medallist blew away the cobwebs with a convincing display, beating Adam McMullen (7.75m) and James Lelliot (7.65m).

Rutherford's best jump was short of the automatic World Championships qualifying mark of 8.19m but he still produced the best effort of any British long jumper in this calendar year.
