Sainsbury's Indoor Grand Prix | National Indoor Arena | Birmingham | Saturday 15th Feb 2014
In what is widely regarded as the best indoor meet in the world, the Sainsbury's Indoor Grand Prix will welcome some of the best athletes in the world to Birmingham’s National Indoor Arena on Saturday 15 February. Last year, a sell-out crowd watched double Olympic and world champion Mo Farah cruise to victory in the 3000m, while Perri Shakes-Drayton, Genzebe Dibaba, Ivan Ukhov, Holly Bleasdale and sprint queens Carmelita Jeter and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce all starred under the lights in Birmingham.
This event is now sold out.
Genzebe Dibaba broke the 2 mile world record to provide a fitting end to another day's world class athletics at the Sainsbury's Indoor Grand Prix. A sold out NIA provided an electric atmosphere as some of the best athletes in the world strutted their stuff at the Birmingham venue.
Dibaba was a run away leader in the women's 2 mile event., but all eyes were on the clock as the lap counter ticked down, with the crowd on their feet cheering her on to a 9.00.48 clocking, a new world record.
James Dasaolu took another major 60m victory over a world class field in 6.50, but it was bittersweet as he appeared to pull his hamstring just metres from the line. There were further victories for British trio Holly Bleasdale, Laura Muir and Nigel Levine, all much to the delight of the watching Birmingham crowd.
There were further world class performances from Erik Kynard who cleared 2.34m to win the men's high jump and Murielle Ahoure, who got the edge over double world and Olympic champion Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce in a nail biting women's 60m final - both women credited with 7.10.
American Richard Browne was the star of the show in the men's T44 60m, as he stormed away from an international field to take victory in a season's best and world leading 7.18.
