DOING THE DOUBLE
HAVING watched Laura
Muir go to the top of the UK women’s 800m rankings and Jake Wightman go No.2 in the men’s 800m rankings, perhaps it is time for Lord
Coe to use his influence to restructure major championship event programmes so that it is possible for athletes to realistically double up at 800m and 1500m?
If he’d only been able to compete in the 800m at the Olympics he wouldn’t have his two 1500m gold medals.
