Obiri breaks National, Meet One Mile record in London

Obiri breaks National, Meet One Mile record in London”

With a warm afternoon expected, Lasitskene could even threaten the world record as she seeks her 17th win of the year against Spain's Olympic champion Ruth Beitia, Vashti Cunningham, the 19-year-old world indoor champion from the United States, and Britain's in-form youngster Morgan Lake.

Obiri went into the trials fresh from breaking the 5,000m National Record with the fifth fastest time ever over the distance at Rome Golden Gala on June 8. It's still a PB for me. I wanted to be at the front and set the pace. "I knew I had a good finish". I just want to thank the crowd for supporting Paralympic sport for years.

But, having recovered from a stress fracture in her foot, Muir was pleased with her effort and is now looking ahead.

"It's always going to be a little bit in the back of your mind but certainly training has been going really well".

After Muir, Sir Mo Farah won the 3000m in one of his last races at the London Stadium, where he won his first two Olympic gold medals in 2012.

Farah, who will retire from the track to focus on road racing after the Worlds (which will also be in London), was made to work hard by Adel Mechaal but pulled clear of the Spaniard on the final lap to win in seven minutes 35.15 seconds.

He said: "I've been in this situation with the experience of 2012, it's a different feeling and I'm getting a bit more nervous in terms of "this is it" but other than that it's normal".

"I love London, there's no place like home".

"I was mad at myself so I thought I had better go and hope there was enough track left and there was by half a metre", he said.

"I'm over the moon with that performance", said Butchart.

Running for Texas A&M on May 26, Kerley smashed the collegiate record of 44.00 set by a then future Olympic champion Quincy Watts, running 43.70sec, a time which put him seventh on the all-time lists.

"In athletics, you've got to have characters and personality and I think today was a great advert for racewalking".

Nijel Amos of Botswana seems to be peaking at the right time ahead of the world champs after he won men's 800m in a blistering season's best time of 1:43.18.

In the men's 400m hurdles Jack Green recorded a season's best 48.77s for sixth, with Jacob Paul setting a new lifetime best of 49.49s as he finished eighth. Michael Bingham, Martyn Rooney, Andrew Steele and Robert Tobin were upgraded from fourth to third after the International Olympic Committee retested urine samples from the Games and retrospectively caught Russian athlete Denis Alekseyev using a prohibited substance.
