Laura Muir stamped her authority on the women’s 1500m final in Berlin on Sunday 12 August – leading the race from the front with more than 900m to go. The pre-race favourite was determined not to allow the race to come down to final sprint and took control of the race after just 500m – leading to the finish line and crossing in a time of 4:02:32.
