'World-class' Muir still keen on London double – coach

Laura Muir

Britain’s Laura Muir has recovered from a stress fracture in her foot and remains “keen” to compete in both the 1500m and 5,000m at August’s World Championships, says coach Andy Young.

Muir missed two weeks of training this month because of the foot problem.

British Athletics performance director Neil Black said on Monday that the 24-year-old Scot had only “a 1%” chance of competing in both events in London.
