Lee McConnell on Laura Muir

Monday, March 18th, 2019

Lee McConnell believes Hampden heartbreak five years ago and a growing sense of maturity will allow Laura Muir to cope with being the face of Scottish athletics.

Middle distance specialist Muir won an unprecedented Double Double at the European Indoors in Glasgow earlier this month as she successfully defended her 1500m and 3000m titles in fine style on her home track at the Emirates Arena.
The pressure was intense on the adopted Glaswegian – the 25-year-old has lived in the city for almost eight years – as the home favourite, event Ambassador and poster girl for the host GB and NI team.

Muir now insists she regards raised expectations as support rather than pressure and has her own high hopes for the IAAF World Champs in Doha this autumn and then the Olympics in Tokyo in 2020.And McConnell, who qualified for the Olympics three times in her own track and field career, feels Laura can take the strain.

‘I am really impressed with the way Laura is handling the spotlight,’ said McConnell.
