Who wins 1500 metres women?
The world’s best athletes all set to go through the Müller Anniversary Games into the World Championships
With the World Championships approaching the summer is getting even more hotter, all eyes are on the upcoming Müller Anniversary Games due to be held on July 20-21 in the London Stadium.
What makes this event important is that all the big-shot athletes of Britain will use it as an opportunity to get prepared for the World Championship.
Many of the country's top athletes will take part in the event including the middle-distance runner, Laura Muir, who'll go against some very strong opponents from all over the world in the 1500 metres race at the London Stadium.
Laura, the European champion in the 1500 metres & 2-times double European indoor champion over 1500m/3000m will face some of the world's best including Faith Kipyegon, Dawit Seyaum, Gudaf Tsegay, and Konstanze Klosterhalfen.
Following a great indoor campaign in which she defended both her 1500 metres and 3000 metres European indoor titles in Glasgow, Laura was also able to get a fantastic start to her outdoor season.
In May, she won the 1500 metres at the Stockholm's Diamond League meet, than in Rome she scored a season’s best of 3m:56.73s (her 2nd-fastest time ever) as she finished 2nd behind her Ethiopian opponent that too only by a fraction of a second. She had a similar result in Stanford too.
Speaking to the media persons, Laura expressed satisfaction at her performance so far and said that she's expecting strong opposition at the Anniversary Games; will take it as test and will try to give her best.
She further said that the wins at the last year's European Championships and this year's European Indoor Championships have boosted her confidence and have made her even more excited about this season.
