Great Britain’s Laura Muir performs her lap of honour after winning the 3,000metres
Great Britain’s Laura Muir completed the first part of her double gold mission by winning the 1500metres at the European Indoor Championships and she understandably wanted to celebrate her achievement.
The 23-year-old Scot clocked a championship record, British record and personal best of four minutes 2.39 seconds in Belgrade to secure her first major title.
Muir, who will return to her studies as a vet on Tuesday, then went on to claim gold in the 3,000metres in a championship-record time of eight minutes 35.67 seconds on Sunday.
After her first triumph she was almost denied her lap of honour when an official blocked her on the track but she insisted she was not going to miss out.
“I had to fight for that didn’t I? The lady said we didn’t have time but on my first medal I’m not going to lose out on my lap of honour,” she said.
“I’m glad I got the medal and the lap of honour. I couldn’t really believe what she was saying but at the end of the day I thought she wouldn’t be able to catch me.”
