Laura’s Glas­gow goal

Athletics Weekly - - Performance -

“I’m very, very fo­cused this win­ter on be­ing in the best shape I can be for the Euro­pean In­door Cham­pi­onships,” says Muir of the event which takes place at Glas­gow’s Emi­rates Arena at the be­gin­ning of March. “Not only is it a home crowd but it’s my home track as well. I train there week in, week out. It will mean a lot to me.

“Ev­ery ath­lete is very com­pet­i­tive but I think when you’re on home turf, you don’t want any­body to take that home glory from you.

“Rest as­sured, I’m go­ing to do the best I can to be in the best shape I can be be­fore that com­pe­ti­tion. It means an aw­ful lot to me and I’ll have lots of friends and fam­ily in the au­di­ence. I want to give the best per­for­mance I can and hope­fully that’s a win there.”
