Emirates Arena - Glasgow
Saturday 15th February 2020
12:00 - 16:30
Sweden’s pole vault starlet Armand Duplantis smashed his own indoor world record with an astonishing jump of 6.18 metres to secure top spot in the men’s pole vault final on what was a stellar day of athletics at the Müller Indoor Grand Prix Glasgow in the Emirates Arena.
Fresh from clearing 6.17 metres in Torun last weekend, man of the moment Duplantis came to Glasgow looking to better his own record and put on an incredible performance in front of the sold-out crowd.
In the Women’s 1500m, the British record holder and in-form Jemma Reekie, stormed to victory in another of the world tour events as she took ten points in Glasgow, in a time of 4:04:07 seconds.
Reekie, who returned to her preferred 1500m after setting the new British 800m record a fortnight ago, ran a controlled race, biding her time in the middle of the pack, before she moved towards the leading trio of Dawit Seyalum (ETH), Rababe Arafi (MAR) and Murusa Mismas (SLO) at the sound of the bell.
Andrew Pozzi continued his unbeaten form indoors, as he took another victory in the men’s 60m hurdles.
The Müller performance of the day went to Jessica Knight in the women’s 400m, who put in a superb display to take victory and move up to third in the world standings as she cut the tape in a fantastic time of 51.51s.
It was a case of Laura Muir to bring proceedings to a close with an indoor world record attempt over the women’s 1000m.
On her final lap, Muir pushed as much as she could, but just fell short of the timings needed to set a new record as she crossed the line in a season’s best time of 2:33:47 seconds. It was a British top two, as Adelle Tracy took second with a personal best performance of 2:37:95 seconds.
