Former Wildcats to compete at IAAF World Indoor Championships

Laura Muir

He's the only men's high jumper to win the event five straight times.

Kenya's Emmanuel Korir will be hoping to take his impressive early season form to the Birmingham World Indoor Championships as he lines up in the 800m heats tonight.

Burchell qualified for her first major global championships final after a dead heat in her semi-final with Trinidad and Tobago's Michelle-Lee Ahye both timed in 7.15 seconds, a season's best time for the Trinidad athlete. Mujinga Kambundji of Switzerland was also credited with 7.05 for the bronze.

Bahamian Donald Thomas earned his place in Birmingham by winning the 2017 IAAF World Indoor Tour.

Birgen won the 1,500m in Glasgow while Kiplangat finished fourth in the 3,000m at the same meeting with a 7:40.12 indoor PB. Others are Dutch Sifan Hassan and Ethiopians Dawit Seyaum and Gudaf Tsegay.

Dibaba seemed to pull up slightly in the last frenetic lap, but held on for victory in 8min 45.05sec, with Hassan cleverly shifting across the lanes to deny Muir.

Barshim landed four flawless jumps before failing three times at 2.36m, leaving the window open for the 20-year-old Lysenko. Germany's Mateusz Przybylko claimed a bronze with 2.29m. The event was won by Carolle Zahi of France in 7.11 seconds.

Barshim added: "I'm happy with the medal but not quite the result".

It was the Russian (or ANA - Authorised Neutral Athlete), Lysenko, who maintained his unbeaten start to 2018 by taking gold with success at 2.36m on his third attempt, while Barshim, the 2014 World indoor champion, failed with three attempts at the same height.
