“I’m disappointed actually because I thought I was a wee bit sluggish. I’m in good shape but right from the first 100m, I thought that it was quick. I settled into it quite well I just didn’t quite have the legs.
When you drop down from altitude after a tough training spell it’s sometimes difficult to get that snappiness but I’m happy enough with that. I’m hoping that’s enough to make the 1500m final in Zurich and get myself ready for the 1500m. It’s not my event, but I love running it. You have Hassan, Klosterhalfen, Muir – all the top girls. If I can get there and even finish last and just get a PB that’ll be great,” said Eilish McColgan
