Her performance in Germany means she holds the three fastest times for 1500m in the world in 2020, despite coming into the year with a calf problem, and she also ranks second for the 800m, behind training partner Jemma Reekie.

Britain’s Kristal Awuah was third in the women’s 100m in 11.44sec and Jazmin Sawyers was third in the long jump with 6.67m. Aimee Pratt was fourth in the women’s 3000m steeplechase.
