DO­ING THE DOU­BLE

Athletics Weekly - - Letters -

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.
