The Müller British Grand Prix played host to some very impressive performances as a number of athletes bound for Tokyo fine-tuned their preparations at the final Wanda Diamond League event before the Olympics.
All eyes were on heptathlon world champion Katarina Johnson-Thompson, who is continuing her return after an injury.
Trayvon Bromell took his first ever Diamond League win in the men’s 100m, the meeting also saw wins by Jamaican sprinter Elaine Thompson-Herah, Dutch hurdles star Femke Bol and German javelin thrower Johannes Vetter.
The Emsley Carr Mile came right down to the wire as British 800m champion Elliot Giles just edged the win with a personal best time of 3:52.49 from Jake Heyward.
The British men’s 4x100m men’s relay team of CJ Ujah, Zharnel Hughes, Richard Kilty and Nethaneel Mitchell-Blake set the fastest time in the world this year with a run of 38.27.
The evening’s final event proved to be one of the highlights as Andrew Butchart broke his own Scottish 3000m record.
