Laura Muir has broken the British 1,500m record at a time of 3:53.79

Laura Muir, a proud Dundee Hawkhill Harrier, has once again etched her name into the British record books with an astounding performance in the Women’s 1,500m.

Clocking a new personal best of 3:53.79, Muir secured third place in a remarkable Diamond League race in Paris.

The race saw Kenya's Faith Kipyegon break the World Record with an incredible time of 3:49.04, while Australian Jess Hull finished in second place with 3:50.83. Muir, demonstrating exceptional race strategy and endurance, crossed the line just behind them.

This achievement comes only a week after she claimed a silver medal at the British Championships, highlighting her peak form.

Muir continues to push the limits of British middle-distance running, her recent rigorous training clearly paying off.

This Paris event marked her final 1500m race before she competes in the Olympics next month, which will be her third Olympic appearance.

Muir's fellow Brit, Georgia Bell, also delivered an impressive performance, finishing fifth with a personal best of 3:56.54.

As Muir heads to the Olympics, the Dundee Hawkhill Harriers and the entire nation will be cheering her on, confident that she is in excellent shape for her upcoming challenge.
